Compaq Armada 1590DT

Year: 1997

Initial Price: $2,499, $4,052 in 2020

The Compaq Armada series are one of the sturdiest business machines ever to be build. The quality and design of these machines makes you wonder why don’t they build them like this anymore? 🙂

I received this computer as a gift from a friend and to be honest it looks almost like new. The HDD has a few bad sectors so I decided to install a SD to IDE adapter and use a 2 GB SD card as storage. I had also installed Windows 98SE and Windows 2000.


  • Intel Pentium MMX 166Mhz
  • 80MB RAM (16MB internal 64MB module added)
  • 2024MB HDD (original equipped)
  • 12.1 Active Matrix Display
  • Battery still holds a 4 hour charge!
