    I have a "laptop" that is a fullsized monitor with a handle on the back of it. The side of the screen has heavy duty clasps that strap the keyboard to the front of it

    :cool: :ugh:

    I have a similar one. That looks like a Compaq portable I, I think I have a portable II. They run off of DOS, have QBASIC... the one I have has some spreadsheet program and a few games.

    Mine has that big 5.25" floppy drive. :)

    I found mine...looks a bit different than yours

    AND it has the bag it came in :naughty:

    i put that in the washer since it had some dust/mildew on it but it washed up fine. I'll have to take more pics of it for you guys. Honestly I dont want to give out a price and rip you all off.

    it's probably only worth $20 or so, if even that much. I'll take more pics at lunch and bump this thread with them. I'll also find out what it is, exactly, so you can compare to ebay ones if there are any?

    fair?

    Looks like one of those old things that they were trying to use to replace the type writer. My sister had one that looked like that and all it could do was be used for word processing.

    Walk with it casually into a library or sit on a public bench with it and watch as people walk by how they react

    that plasma screen generates enough heat to warm up your house..

    and uses enough energy to max out a power plant !!

    For you DOS fucks out there...buy a 486 laptop on Ebay for $30 ??
