    AST 386SX Utilities Disk 910401-033

    I had a couple of those laptops. Really liked them. Replaced the hard drives with CF adapters, used them as silent desktops with a VGA monitor attached. The graphics chip can do good CGA, Hercules emulation, etc. I got the drivers from here...

    Typewriters that acted as printers

    I have a Juki Sierra 3200 which is based on the Olivetti Praxis 35 engine. Around 1987 I think. Works perfectly as a typewriter and also as a printer, but it is excruciatingly slow (think several minutes per page). I rather like it and use it for simple letters. Currently it's connected to a...

    Northern Europe Amber monochrome Hercules/MDA monitor (Berlin, Germany)

    Thanks. It would also be the wrong voltage, unfortunately (220-240V in Europe), but I'm sure someone will take it off your hands.

    Northern Europe Amber monochrome Hercules/MDA monitor (Berlin, Germany)

    Looking for a really good Hercules/MDA monitor with amber phosphor, no burn-in and a good, stable picture. Willing to pay well. I'm in Berlin but shipping from elsewhere is OK as long as the monitor is very well packed.

    Orchid Ramquet XT/AT

    You're welcome. It's always frustrating to have hardware with no software. Those notes are a little out of date, though, as I did much of my testing on a Commodore PC that turned out to have other issues and didn't work too well with the Orchid card. Below are my later notes which should be more...

    1987 Panasonic KX-E700m video-typewriter / word-processor and monitor (Germany)

    I've owned this machine for a few years. It's a big old beast, very well constructed and is mostly working perfectly, with only one known issue. When I bought it there was about 20KB of text stored on it. It was previously owned by a church group and whoever used it knew its features inside...

    Chip in monitor just exploded: identification please?

    9-inch monochrome VGA monitor, the sort that were sometimes used in POS systems. Working fine, no sign of instability, then a loud bang followed by smoke and no picture. I turned it off quickly, left it for a while, then dismantled it. I was looking for a blown capacitor of some kind, so it took...

    WTB: Amstrad monochrome VGA monitor, as sold with PC 2086 and similar

    As title. I'm looking to buy a monochrome (black & white) VGA monitor as sold with the Amstrad PC compatibles range in the mid-late 1980s. I'm in Germany but can arrange shipping from the UK or elsewhere in Europe.

    Monochrome VGA monitors: different types of phosphor

    I have three monochrome VGA monitors, all apparently 'white' but only one has white phosphor, as far as I can tell. The other two appear to be a composite of yellow and (possibly) blue. It's not easy to tell, except by moving one's eyes quickly while a high-contrast image is on the screen. The...

    2x Olivetti M240 (AT&T 6300 WGS) for sale in Germany and the UK

    And photos of the German machine. Olivetti printer included for free if the buyer wants it, though I haven't tested it and there are some small plastic pieces that snapped off it in transit, from the cover, etc. Should be repairable with superglue.
