After many years of looking the eBay gods smiled upon me and I have acquired a complete Commodore PC20-III - the seller was new so the price was low, and it was shipped in one small box, but the seller actually knew how to pack!! Monitor double boxed inside, all other components had styrofoam cut to wrap around it. However, the keyboard looks like it was stored in an active tanning bed.

 

I almost posted this in the "Irrational Want" topic because I have no reason to collect an old Turbo XT like this, but was thrilled to find it nonetheless.

This, and the sound card inside it.  Not the monitor, though - owned that since 1996. Nor the gamepad - think I got that in 2008.  And I've had that keyboard for a few years too.

Believe it? That's a Pentium/133.

 

LGR did a video of the earlier 486DX2 version on his YT channel, which inspired me to buy the Pentium version (I originally wanted the same one he had, but was unable to find one, so got the next model up).  When I did a video on mine, I put a nod to him at the end - in green text with the BIOS font on the monitor.
