    Quite some time ago but, if I recall correctly it was a Compaq.

    It was a "Portable" but was very heavy. Looked like a Portable sewing machine case.
    No hard drive, used monster 5 1/4 inch floppies and had a funky plastic display.

    Think it was an 8088 cpu.Probably first version of dos only.
    Also, owned a copy of the first Toshiba laptop.

    ? 20 MB hdd, 640kb memory, dos6?, WordPerfect 3.1, green lcd screen, HEAVY!
    DOT matrix printers too.

    1971 was when Joe Sugarman was selling those calculators for $350 that did simple math
    only ac adapter powered.
    Now in the checkout lines keychain calcs are like $1.50

    Oh, by the way that Toshiba Laptop if I recall right, running DOS, NEVER crashed!
    Ask how many times W98 did crash...I can't count that high :)
    Happier with XP and love UBUNTU.
    Hate the idea of anguishing through yet another wydoz7 release.
    Skipped Vista.
