My PC1 is a nice XT machine. It seems faster then my 5160. There is more color. It runs GEM well, and it also runs PC/XT stuff too. It also takes up a lot less desk space. With the match hard drive and 8087 it covers all the bases.

I just recently picked up a PC1, and so far I am using a Commodore 1084 monitor.  CGA sucks, but even if I could find a color EGA monitor at a reasonable price, I don't know I have the space to store it since it would only be usable for this one system.

I tried a Commodore 1084S on it and it worked ok, was weird as it was acting like CGA but some games run on EGA...

There are several versions of the 1084, and 1084S. They all have different feature sets, and connections.

The only way I could ID my 1084S was by comparing the back jacks to several online manuals. 

FYI
