The Big Blue hardhat definitely wins the prize though! You've gotta crop that into a headshot and put it in as your avatar...
I stuck a maxtor LXT-200 234 megabyte drive into my PS/2 50z in October 2001, I shudder to think about what I must have paid for it:

I also upgraded the RAM to 4 meg. I shudder to think what that expenditure must have been too...
I think I still have the original teensy hard disk it came with, if anyone wants it give me a holler, I think it sports a DOS 6.22
Oh and the original IBM keyboard is indestructible, it's plugged into my 200 MHz Pentium Pro, running Slackware 13.0, doing duty as the firewall between the Internet and my LAN. Numerous NMB keyboards have bit the dust over the period of time that this keyboard has been performing flawlessly. It's built like a Sherman Tank, from the era before the keyboard industry became comoditized...
