NEC PC 8201A

Spring cleaning today, stumbled upon this old "laptop pc". Wonder if I can use this for anything useful. I feel a hack coming on. Anyone still own one?


I got this talking with my computer via serial cable, and wrote a few basic programs with it. Somewhere I still have an unofficial manual for this baby.


Year: 1983

Processor: Intel 80C85 - 2.4 576 MHz

OS: Microsoft BASIC 1.0

Memory: 32 KB and up to 64 KB

Power: 4xAA batteries, up to 20+ hours operating time!!! (really?)
