Just thought I'd make this thread about my new laptop that a friend gave me when he was clearing out his garage.
It's a Toshiba Satellite Pro 440CDX from 1996, though my BIOS is dated August 1997.
it's about 4.5cm (roughly 1.75 inches) thick.
It has a 133MHz Intel Pentium MMX Processor, and 80MB of RAM.
It also has a 1.34GB Hard Drive, which slides in the front of the laptop. But I thought that might not be enough storage, so I got a PCMCIA to Compact Flash adapter and permenantly put in a 4GB flash card into the slot.
Just to let everyone know, this thread isn't a joke and I actually do use this laptop almost daily. Despite being 18 years old, the battery still holds about an hour of charge. I don't mind being patient with it and I have used slower computers. Oh, and it's running Windows 98SE. Here are some more pictures:
The screen doesn't look the best, especially on camera, as it's an old Passive-Matrix LCD, which look quite washed out and ghosty compared to most other LCD's even of the time.
Here's a good comparison on Youtube between active matrix and passive matrix displays: (not my video by the way)
Hey, the laptop on the left looks like mine! Except it has a better screen. But you can see how the display on the PowerBook looks like everything's on a fade transition.
Anyway, that's all. I'm happy to answer anyone's questions Now all I need is a PCMCIA ethernet card so I can get on the internet with this thing ^_^
