IBM PC - Model 3270

Release Date: 10/1/1983
Manufacturer: IBM
Donated By: Dave Bastedo
The IBM 3270 PC (model 5271), released in October 1983, was an IBM PC XT containing additional hardware which could emulate the behaviour of a 3270 terminal. It could therefore be used both as a standalone computer, and as a terminal to a mainframe.

Ours is chock full of hardware as you can see from this picture and is extremely heavy.
