IBM Industrial Computer: $10,000 PC from 1985

Checking out the IBM 7532 Industrial Computer, introduced in May of 1985 at $6149. Prices only went up from there, easily surpassing $10000 for a decent setup with EGA and a hard drive! It's one monster of a rackmount 286, built for use in professional environments like factories, power plants, and alongside mainframes.
And yep, this is the source of the legendary gray Industrial Model M keyboard!

  • I've recently bought one of these on german eBay, listed as broken but complete with original hard disk, 720kb FDD and fully loaded with expansion cards (also with the front door yours is missing :) ). I also got the service documentation for it in those neat folders which can be used as reading stands, I'm sure you'd love them. While I was restoring it (the problem turned out to be just one of the tantalum caps on one of the expansion cards), I was really surprised by how little information there was on those monsters in the retro community. And now I see your video entirely devoted to it! It is really great that you have brought this beast of a computer to a wider audience. In the end, it really is nothing else but 5170's beefier twin, but it is so much cooler ;) I'm really jealous of that monitor you got for it!
