Lazy Game Reviews takes us for a trip down memory lane — at least, if you are as old as me — as they unbox a vintage yet never used before IBM PC 5170 built in the year 1988, sporting a whopping 286 Mhz in computing power. This was an era of serial ports, IRQ configuration and EGA graphics.

I was fortunate to be able to buy a sealed, new old stock IBM PC 5170 built in the year 1988! What a rare treat. Join me in savoring each piece of retro tech as I set it up with PC-DOS 3.30 and EGA graphics.
