Welcome to the forums! Do you have a collection going? Any specific run of Toshiba you collect?

Right now, I have a Toshiba Satellite A105-S4284. I got it back in November 2006. I know someone who wants to get rid of his old T1600. Should I make an offer. I'm just starting out.:mrgreen:

Well, if you can just hang on to it for the next 20 years you should have a good start! I have a Toshiba T6600 "portable," but I don't consider it vintage yet since it's a '486.

Welcome! As far as I can see, vintage Toshiba computers can be divided in three lines: the T series (T-100, T-200, T-300 and later on T-1200), the Pasopia series and the HX series (MSX compatibles). There may be more, but those were the ones listed on old-computers.com.

Perhaps the machine that would attact the VCF audience the most is the Pasopia 16 / T-300 / PAP: http://www.old-computers.com/museum/computer.asp?st=1&c=414

The 'T' series should also be divided again, as Toshiba revived the name from the early 80s CP/M machines...:

...again in the early 90s, with the DynaBook tablets, although many here wouldn't consider them as vintage, strictly speaking.:

Really? I scrapped a bunch of T-100s and T-300s but I think there's still a T-300 somewhere waiting to go to the dump (although I think the monitor's already gone).

I do still have a pile of manuals and diskettes though, as well as preliminary tech manuals (hand-written with lots of notes in Japanese ;-) for both the T-100 & T-300.

Oh, and I also have a T-3100e that I also bought new, but you can't have that. And a 3200 somewhere...

I didn't check if it would be unusual or not, just something that most closely resembled an IBM PC as I feel the majority of VCF users are specialized in PC/XT/AT.

Well, yes, the T300 was one of those almost-compatible PC-types, but with 96TPI QD floppies and much better colour graphics (optional); it could also run CP/M IIRC, while the T-100 was a CP/M only machine with funky SS RAM disks. Well built machines.
