A quick questions: Is that one of the "first Green Energy pc
version" in a notebook sized tiny black box with a flat display
panel? Well, we got excited over it but it was so weird and that
weak 486SLC 33 cpu, I do have similar chip on a tiny motherboard by
cyrix and it's dreadful slow even in DOOM, I had to keep it under
half the size compared to my Luddite it did well one or two step
above half way size o/c'ed to 25mhz and 4-way 4k cache enabled. But
I did not remember this PS/2E cpu speed do you have the mhz speed?

To have it that costs you 30 bux each for only about 5 years old
thing, that is pretty lucky. What did you got with this pc in this
deal? Funny, this Luddite is LTE 386s/20 sold as discontiuned in
that '93 because you brought this year up reminded me. This notebook
was first announced around early '92 or late '91. This notebook is
still in use and sells around 100 to 200 with some s/w and stuff
thrown in.
