Wow, how did I make it this far in life without learning about the IBM JX?

It's an odd machine. Even inside of IBM United States there was not a lot of discussion or information about it.

I don't consider it to be close to a PCjr. Different I/O bus. Different keyboards, video, drives, etc. About the only thing recognizable to a PCjr owner would be cartridge slots and the 3 voice sound.

Close enough for me! If it supports stock PCjr graphics in addition to the enhanced ones, it would make a great PCjr development box.
You're all insane and trying to steal my magic bag!
