Compaq Portable

My Compaq portable (added to my collection in 2014)

  • 8088 CPU at 4.77Mhz
  • 640K RAM (expanded with AST RAM/RTC/Serial combo card)
  • Full height 360K 5.25″ floppy drive
  • 270MB HD on Future Domain TMC-885 SCSI card
  • 3Com Etherlink II Ethernet card
  • IBM PC DOS 3.30

I have replaced the foam discs in a few of the dead keys, but I have not done the whole thing yet, I will probably order a kit of the foam discs since it is VERY tedious to make them.
