   That's been done. I THINK the guy that did has a website explaining the changes. The most difficult part was finding an AT compatible keyboard that fits the case. Compaq did make some (used in a 286 version of the Portable) but they're not easy to find.

etc, with an updated screen, but now it appears as if it may actually be of worth to someone as is. I even have the original receipt from Sears Business Center, where I bought it. Got an IBM proprinter also at the time, but that is now long gone.
