THE IBM PC DEBUTED ON THIS DAY IN 1981

The IBM Personal Computer, model number 5150, was created by a
team of engineers and designers under the direction of Don Estridge
of the IBM Entry Systems Division in Boca Raton, Florida. The initial
price of the first PC was $1,565, about the cost of a decent used car
in those days.

Because the IBM PC was meant to be sold to the general public but
IBM didn’t have any retail stores, they were sold through catalogue
retailer Sears & Roebuck.
