IBM PS/2 Model 30

This computer was one that I found in a car at my local scrap yard. It was around the time when I first started taking an interest in older computers so I thought I would get it and see if it would go. I suppose the thought was that there was nothing to loose but I might actually learn something about how they work without delving into the inside of my main computer and possibly destroying that one. But to my surprise when I got it home and connected it to a spare monitor that I had got it went straight away, although the hard disk whine's very load.
