IBM, forever synonymous with the origin of personal computers, offered a wide range of models to meet the needs of both businesses and consumers during the 90s. One of their most popular models during this time was the ThinkPad line, laptops which were known for their durable design and high-quality performance. Additionally, IBM offered a range of desktops and towers, such as the Aptiva, which were designed for business and home use, providing powerful processing capabilities and expandable options.

IBM also developed OS/2 during the decade. OS/2 was an operating system touted as the better, faster alternative to Windows. Although ultimately losing the battle against Microsoft, OS/2 provided a brief glimpse of what desktop computing might be like without the hegemony of Windows.
