IBM PC @ 30: Original review of the Personal Computer Model 5150 – reviews for UK IT professionals – V3.co.uk
– You could actually use a TV as the monitor
– The function of the scroll lock key was a mystery even then
– BASIC (stored in the ROM) came before DOS
– Esc, Alt + Del was the reboot combo
And from the review in a nutshell:
“This is probably the most professionally put-together system I have seen. The only thing missing at the moment is a wide selection of packages, but I rather feel that the whole world and its grandmother will be frantically trying to fill that particular gap.”
