Enough about me....

Bought my first two PS/2s in 1989 - a brand new 8580-111, and an 8550-061. Still have the 8580. The 8580 ran almost continously until 1997 or so - off mainly for power cuts. I still have it - can't bear to part with it. Not many people bought PS/2s as home computers!

The 8550 went in the Great Upgrade of 1992, to be replaced by an 8557. The 8580 was moved to my work office, and in came an 8595-ALF (European -0LF). Still have both of those, too. Plus about 30 or so other PS/2s, including 8530, 8555, 8557, 9556, 8573 (P70), 9576, 9577, several 8580s of different
sorts, 9585, 8590, and lots of 8595/9595. Plus lots of monitors, keyboards, and boxes of parts.

These all reside in what should be our living room. Our living room is up in one of the bedrooms. I am told by 'The Management' that this Has To Change.
