    The Journey of the Laptop

    Sit down and I'll tell ye of a fantastical tale all of which spent a year in the making, and resulted in 12 hours of work to achieve one final product. I've wanted a laptop for awhile now. Nothing fancy or powerful, mind you, just enough to take notes and do some writing. Heck, even a 386...

    I think it's safe to say...

    ... that the Pentium class processors (P54, P55C) can be considered legacy. I see that pretty much all of the vintage computing sites stop their definitions of legacy processors at 486. Pentium debuted in 1994 if I can recall correctly. That's 10 years. I personally consider all Pentium...

    AMD 80386DX processor and coprocessor, clock crystal

    I'm perhaps interested in doing some legacy overclocking. I got a very nice 386 motherboard with an AMD 33MHz processor in it right now as well as 20MB of RAM (4 sticks of 4MB and 4 sticks of 1MB). My goal would be to get the AMD 40MHz processor and matching coprocessor and overclock the system...

    Pentium 200 non-MMX processor

    I have a P54C motherboard that I have pretty tripped out now as a secondary Windows system. 64MB EDO RAM, 512KB L2 chache, however the fastest processors I have for it are only a Pentium 133 and an IBM 6x86 P150+ 120MHz. So therefore, if anyone has a Pentium 200 non-MMX processor that they are...

    Memory for Panasonic KX-P4430 laser printer

    Not exactly vintage, I know, but I have a laser printer that I'd like to put more memory into due to the size of the documents I usually print. If anyone has one, please get in touch with me.

    Missing Disk 1 from Windows 95 A Floppy Set

    Hello everyone. I'm just curious if anyone could possibly help me? I have a 386 system I'd like to try installing Windows 95 A onto, just for the sake of trying it, and I have what I thought was a complete disk set of Win95A on 13 floppies, but it turns out I'm missing the first installation...
