Aaron, I think I have most of the Zenith laptops from the 80's but what is the model # of it? What else may you have in laptops from the 1980's?? Regards, Jim

...I'm not familliar with the IBM PC radio, what is it?

I think they are like the units carried in police cars now. I've got two of them, which I need to get at least one working (remembering that one had a broken LCD screen I think). Pictures can be put up by me if needed.

MicroOffice RoadRunner?

MicroOffice RoadRunner?

anybody got one (working or not)?

mine appears to be gone :(

it was a prototype, as i was one of the software engineers :)

how long did _your_ RAM cartridges last? i had a couple still with good data at 10 years. unfortunately, the company i was at needed a 480x128 LCD display, and silly me let the hardware guys borrow the one out my RR. they fried it after a couple days, so that was the last time i could test the cartridges. still beeped when i opened it up as of a couple years ago, but no screen.

oh, by the way - the OS wasn't "custom," it was InfoSoft I/OS, which was also in the coleco ADAM. our development system was a brute S100 machine (Golden West) running MultI/OS, a multi-user (4 users, 256K bank switched RAM) version of the same OS our product ran. worked great, till someone fired up WordStar, which polled the BIOS for keystrokes rather than waiting for input.
