IBM Industrial Computer: $10,000 PC from 1985

Publicerades den 2 apr 2021
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!

  • Oh yeah! , turning on that machine ... reminds me of my PS4 Pro running in 4K :D

  • But can it run doom

  • the Green Color Reminds of Fallout a bit xD

  • El. Psy. Kongroo.

  • awesome.

  • "Nuclear Warhead Launched"

  • the NIN joke got the like from me

  • $524 for an EGA graphics card? Insane! RTX3090 anyone ?

  • 【aesthetic】

  • Looks like a Quisinart.

  • I had one of them

  • Booting up computers back then seems like an experience of it's own with all those clicks, beeps and wurrs.

  • My girlfriend often complains that my computer is loud ... maybe I should show her this video =D Thank!

  • The Aptiva Was Launched In September Of 1994 And Discontinued In 2001

  • But can it run Crysis ?

  • All computers should be bolted to the floor, especially laptops. And Macbooks should be bolted down through the center of the keyboard.

  • cool I never thought of moving my model M into a new case

  • What is the car game at 15:40?

    • Vette!

  • 5:44 I am sure, if you ever want to do something else than LGR, you´ll immediately find a job in advertising. And now excuse me, I have to order some wooden products... PS: Are you fine? All limbs in normal shape and quantity? Rubbing a filter that turns into dust on contact after a long life in a nuclear power plant makes a paranoid player of postapocalyptic games a bit worried abour the wellbeing of my favorit voice on SEnewss

  • 👋😀🇸🇦

  • Those sounds...almost gives me goosebumps. It's the sound of a happy bright limitless future...😔

  • I'm really happy I can experience this without having to own it, I don't have the space for anything like this :)

  • keybored condom

  • At 9:09 the chip numbers reminds me of my digital design days. And, nand, or gates, etc.

  • Fart.

  • Now that’s real Woodgrain just like my Marantz receiver.

  • Ugly is the last thing I'd call that thing!

  • Omg wow thats loud, it sounds like the engine cooling fan on a car during a hot day with the ac on high lol. My first pc was a used COMPAQ DESKPRO 386/25 and i swear it sounded like a plane. I hated it at first since i was comparing it to a quiet little mac i used at school.

  • Spruce Pine has some good thrift stores.

  • That is a BRUTE

  • It does look like a microwave.

  • I think it’s actually louder than an A-10. We had them at Spangdahlem AB, when I was there.

  • 4:12 vladamir putin?

  • I think you should v-mod the fans to 7v or 5v to make the computer more playable

  • LGR - I'm wondering if you have done old smartphones? For example, on eBay and such places you can find sealed, boxed examples of old Android phones like the HTC Magic. For a different take on old cell phones that are not smartphones, check out the Nokia N-Gage.

  • Funny how this channel always makes me feel amazed and excited like when i started to discover computers in the early 90s... Thanks Clint for the nostalgia feels.

  • OMG... WOW!! Holy Cow!! Shhwwoooooooo! (Seismic detectors react across half the globe....) I can remember what it may have sounded like with two full height 5.25 Mfm's shaking to life...

  • i wanna know more about that alarm clock with light attached on your desk!

  • That gigantic card (9:15) is exactly what it says it is, it's an old IBM Channel Adapter. It is indeed used to connect a PC to a mainframe's "Channel I/O Architecture" which is the original implementation that IBM engineer Chet Heath then reused to create the Micro Channel Architecture of the PS/2 line. It's a bus designed to connect the various components of an IBM mainframe but that could also be used to connect to anything with the right adapter.

  • I'm thinking the mystery board is an ESCON Channel Adapter.

  • Man.. I used have a job replacing these from offshore oil platforms to more recent IPC610’s

  • The fact you can bolt that one on the floor made me laugh really hard

  • Very loud & the completely opposite of my 286 with Noctua fan in my PSU😉 BTW how can I have a "Tandon" logo as a .bat file?

  • 14:45 I see the two math coprocessors where not put in

  • 2:48 He steps back and admires the monitor so .... fondly 🥰

  • this pc in nutshell: $10k jet engine

  • Wait, you can go out and buy security bits to open up your rare IBM computer? You don't have to dremel them open? ;)

  • Didn't they use this to program Terminators in 2135? The only surviving Industrial computer.....

  • It's kinda crazy how little computer expenses matter in an industrial environment. When capital equipment can be 50-100k per installation, adding a computer for 10-20k (especially if it's rugged enough for the environment) becomes far less important on the purchase order. Nowadays, companies just want to know that the computer abides by whatever their corporate IT policy dictates

  • Loud 🔊 as hell. 😂

  • Mr. Regular, Roman and Clint. Can you imagine anything more BROWN? So excited when I saw the post on Instagram!

  • Please a video building Windows Vista with Lenovo

  • Hey LGR don't know if you already did a vid on it but we would really like to see a video of Heroes of Might and Magic

  • back in the day where the silicon graphics assholes decide , that we have to sell a kidney to be able to afford a computer. I Remember i got a pc in 1989/1990 where i had an ega card and monitor by samsung , a hyndai pc with an 8086 processor , 5 1/2 disk drive and a samsung monitor .... paying a total of 1400$ ....

  • 14:00 oh wow I didn't know Ross Scott was gonna be in this video

  • impressive piece of machinery :)

  • I appreciate you also giving the measurements in metric units for us normal people

  • Playing games on this industrial computer is like playing Gameboy with the green color

  • The power switch has an audible clunk, newer desktops don't come close.

  • Atomic Edition :D

  • That`s some serious Computer Equipment you have gotten your hands on there.

  • Ah woodgrain... 🤤

  • Filtered fans? Holy shit, my computer that I built last year doesn't even have those!

  • Wait what

  • Man, you are really, *really* enjoying your new clock. This is like, the third video I spotted it in.

  • Sorry if i have watched the Chernobyl series too much lately, but if i got gear that was used in any nuclear power plant for years, i would loan me a dosimeter and check it.

  • But was there a decent alternative for more durable? That's probably where they had you.

  • loud industrial machine, german CPU. :O

  • 6:39 what my computer sounds like when I play minecraft

  • Love that intro

  • 6:30 the sounds that thing is putting out!

  • 2:08 beauti clip eh

  • Can you direct me to the wooden 5u case that’s awesome!

  • If we come up with one of these fully furnished. (Half price

  • I forgot people used to have keyboard covers. Really, that would be a very sanitary idea for modern office as well.

  • Mainframe channels (think SCSI) were the high speed disk / tape/ term cluster PU/ printer. There wasn't any LU 6 2 software with it?

  • Are you gonna do edutainment month this year? 🙃 (just throwing it out there: jumpstart 3rd grade).

  • Keyboard condom!!!! That just brought back memories of the late 90s working as a cook at Dominos Pizza. All the keyboards at the phones for call ins orders and also the keyboard on the prep line had these things! What a fun time slinging pizzas in my high school days!

  • When your are using your computer at 2 AM: 6:22

  • Those keyboard condoms used to come pre heat stressed with cracks and grease inserted under it for an extra fee. Only cheap-o workplaces didn't get the filthy crusty keyboard combo.

  • Time to set up a super annoying 10BASE5 network!

  • Hey Clint! I just had few beers and I'm binge watching your older videos (ofc commenting under newest one - not that drunk!;-)). Just wanted to say thank you for your content and work. Stay safe and healthy! Greeting from Poland - fellow 86 boomer ;-)

  • > Rare IBM machine > Buys the appropriate security hex bits to take it apart instead of using a Dremel > Plays Planet X3 as a demo immediately after But where are the paper clips?

  • They need to bring back the keyboard condom!!!

  • The unknown card is an IBM channel to channel adapter

  • Wood grain swagger

  • Looks like it would be right at home on the factory floor in the final scene of Terminator!

  • What a beautiful machine. I think I like this one more than my previous favourite, the Commodore PET (newer models).

  • Sounds like a Tornado-In-A-Box(C) when you turn it on.

  • This should be standard now in all colleges

  • Goign by that price list, this machine seemed like a licence to print money!

  • that old industrial fan all i wonder is just how loud it is dose it rival a PS4 going jet or the heat it produced

  • What does Salem mean?

  • Would be wise to check the monitor for isotopic radiation. Probably just 3,6 roentgen, so no worry, but time will tell. Greetings from USSR.

  • That monitor is going to make you grow another arm. That's how nuclear works, right?

  • looks like mac pro

  • 13:51 Was that the 8Bit Guy strategy game?

  • A gaming PC for traveling.

  • So bulky and industrial looking. I approve! Edit. And it sounds like it's about to take off! Hahaha. Awesome!

  • I wonder if this system could run the 1992 game The Oakflat Nuclear Power Plant Simulator from Gamtech Software.
