IBM PS/ValuePoint

The IBM PS/ValuePoint (or just ValuePoint) personal computer was IBM's answer to the PC clone market, where the IBM PS/2 could not compete due to price and proprietary interfaces. Announced in October 1992 and withdrawn in July 1995, it was replaced by the IBM PC Series 300.

These systems used standard ISA-bus architecture, SVGA graphics and IDE hard disks. Later models introduced VESA Local Bus and PCI.

Processors range from the 386SLC-25, 486SX25, 486DX-33, and 486DX2-66 to the Pentium 60.
