Zenith Minisport laptop with 2 inch floppy disk (1992)

This is a very special laptop. It’s thin, light and doesn’t have a hard disk but flash memory! I think this was a laptop for programmers.

Despite this laptop is 26 years old it’s still working. Oh, I forgot to tell it also is passive cooled so it also doesn’t make any noice. Actually, while this laptop was very futuristic it wasn’t very practical. Because this laptop was shipped with a 2 inch floppy drive people couldn’t do very much with it, nevertheless I guess there might be a possibility to attach a 3,5 inch or even a 5,25 inch floppy drive to it.

Some specs:

  • 80C88 CMOS CPU 4.77 Mhz or 8 Mhz
  • 1 or 2 MBs or RAM
  • MS-DOS 3.30 Plus from a ROM chip
  • 640 x 200 LCD screen
  • A weight of 5.9 lb (2.7 kg) with the battery
