    Hi
    I have one from new. I bought it to travel around the world with it back around 1991. I turned it on the other day and it comes up with a type of bios screen asking what do i want to configure. I do not think it has a hard drive. Once I get it back from being on display I will investigate more.

      Hi Roy,

      I do have the original MS-DOS 3.30 Disk for this laptop. I will send you an image of the disk so you can write your own. Sent me a reminder on thex86generation@gmail.com or office@muzeuldecalculatoare.ro
