Most importantly IBM sold the machines standard with a hard drive. Additional changes include the addition of three extra slots and the elimination of the rarely used cassette port. The basic architecture of the machine was not changed.|

The IBM PC XT in my collection is a complete and original machine that still has the original IBM/Miniscribe 10 MB full-height hard disk running true.
The machine came equipped with a Princeton Graphics display system compatible with IBM CGA.
The inside of the machine shows off the extra ISA slots that IBM Provided with the XT.
And the display shows that the machine is working perfectly.
Also included with the machine are the original IBM manuals: DOS 2.0, BASIC and the XT Guide to Operations.
