From the box:
The IBM PCjr Connector for TV is used
to connect a standard color or
black and white television set to the System Unit.
If you have ever used a television as a computer display you know how bad it looks; use the composite output of the PCjr instead if you have that option. However, if you want a mint condition, never been opened, genuine, not-so-rare IBM PCjr Connector for TV, then this is the deal of the week!
A special port on the back of the PCjr labeled "T" sends video and
audio to the adapter, which in turn converts it to a signal that can be
picked up on channel 3 or 4 on the television. (On the television
side the adapter connects through the antenna input.) Most RF
adapters like this for other computers are half the size of this
one. Like all IBM equipment of the time, it is over-engineered.
If you would prefer one that is open and gently used, please contact me - that can be arranged and the price will be right.
This is sold AS-IS and untested for obvious reasons. (If I tested it then it would not be new, anymore, right?)
Country of manufacture: Japan
This is the official IBM branded PCjr joystick. You will note that it has a rectangular Berg style connector, so don't try this on a different machine. A PCjr can use up to two joysticks at the same time.
Controls include two fire buttons, trim pots for perfect centering, and two spring releases on the underside to allow you to use it in normal or free-floating mode (selectable per axis).
Note: This picture is a sample of a joystick and it will probably not be the exact joystick that you buy. (Yours will look better.)
Interface: Standard Floppy controller
This is a used 3.5" floppy drive. There is not much one can say about floppy drives ...
Enclosure FRU: 05K6187
Drive FRU: 05K8874
This is an external floppy drive enclosure and floppy drive for an
older model IBM ThinkPad. The drive separates from the enclosure and
can be used in the ThinkPad bay. When in the enclosure it can be
connected to the ThinkPad dock.
This worked when I last used it but should be considerd as untested
and thus it is sold AS-IS. I am sure it works fine and the price is
FRU P/N: 74P6734
This is dock used with many older ThinkPads, including the A2x series, A3x series, R3x series, R40, R5x series, T2x series, T30, and T4x series. See http://www.thinkwiki.org/wiki/ThinkPad_Port_Replicator_II for details.
Note that a power adapter is not included; you can use your existing
power adapter to power the dock, which will pass that power through to
FRU P/N: 08K8205
Output: 16V 4.5A
This is a bog standard AC adapter for ThinkPads. It is compatible with the T2x, T3x and T4x series, and probably all of the other machines from that time frame. (Please do your homework to see if this one will work for your machine.)
FRU P/N: 22P7092
Input: 11.5 to 16VDC 8.5A Max
Output: 16VDC 4.5A (72W Max), 3.6A continuous
This is a slightly less bog standard adapter for ThinkPads which allows you to use one in a car or airplane. It is compatible with the T2x, T3x and T4x series, and probably all of the other machines from that time frame. (Please do your homework to see if this one will work for your machine.)

This is a new keyboard in the original box. The box is in reasonable condition, but a flap or two are torn so it is not going to be a museum piece. Given how many of these keyboards were made, that should not be a problem.
This is a quiet keyboard - it does not make the ferocious clicking sound that Model M keyboards make.I'm not sure what machines this is appropriate for; it would seem to be a good fit for the lower end Aptiva systems.
Manufacturer: ASP Computer
Unless you know exactly what this is don't bother looking at it. Because I barely know what it is. ; - 0
This is a print server module but I have no idea what it supports or what it plugs into. There is a later model from this company out there, but the details on that are thin. This does not look like it plugs into any of the HP printers; I'm guessing it is for a standalone print server unit.
This is in good condition but untested. It's a good candidate for the recycling bin, but just in case you need one of these here it is ...
Warning: This is not tested!
I've been carrying this box around way too long. The contents of the box include the card, two extra chips, cables, and some loose connectors. Also included are two pages that include a diagram of the card and a logic diagram of the wiring.
I have zero knowledge of this card, as sadly I was never an Apple ][ owner.
FCC ID: DC9CD-55IF
Ports: 40 pin IDE, 3.5mm external audio, internal four pin audio
This is a simple interface card for an early CD-ROM. It looks to be an IDE interface; the jumper settings let you choose which IDE interface this will be (first, second, third or fourth), and interrupts 10, 12, 14 or 15.
This is new in the box with an instruction sheet and CD-ROM.
