Vintage IBM 5140 Convertible Laptop PC Computer ~ 1986 ~ Excellent Condition
Condition Excellent
Shipping weight 25 Pounds

This auction is for a rare find, a vintage 1986 IBM 5140 PC Convertible in working excellent condition. This computer comes with the following:

  • Hard Case w/ Padded Interior 
  • IBM PC Convertible Start-Up Diskette
  • Power Supply Cable
  • IBM PC Convertible Guide to Operations
  • An Orientation to the IBM PC Convertible
  • IBM PC Convertible Problem Determination Procedures
  • IBM PC Convertible Backlit LCD Installation Guide
Both disk drives work fine as well as the screen and keyboard.  It uses 3.5 Diskettes. 

We purchased this, along with a Citizen 120-D Printer, for our son as it was a requirement for the college he attended back in 1986.  He used for a couple of years and has been stored away protected in the hard case ever since.    Originally cost us about $2,000.    It always worked fine, and I just recently turned it on and seemed to power up fine, but because it is a vintage computer I am selling as is.  

The serial # is:  26831-26-0073293.   The PC with the accessories in its original hard case weighs 22-3/4 pounds.

I have the Citizen 120-D Printer that was used with this computer listed in a separate auction.  Click on the link below to view it.
