Those were the fun days!!!
My first computer (didn't build it) was an IBM PC with dual 360K floppy drives and no hard drive. The PC and XT were similar in that they both ran the 8088 cpu at 4.77Mhz but the XT came with a 10M hard drive while the PC came with 1 or 2 floppy drives. The XT had eight 8-bit expansion slots whereas the PC had only 5 slots.
Using a computer that had only floppy drives, or cassette or paper tape for storage was certainly different than the systems we have today with giga or tera bytes of storage.
