They only had one or two laptops in the early 90's. The form factor would
have been similar to the GRiD 1720. I remember Digital had a lttle laptop
that I evaluated while working at ICI in the early 90's. We did not buy
any, they were nice but they did not seem rugged enough for the sales reps
ithey were intended for. That must have been one of their last products
before being bought out by Compaq. Likely it's just a standard 286 laptop
IBM format clone I 'reccon, unlikely to be a 3/486. If it's not
functional, start with the power supply, make sure you're feeding the
correct power to the system before you do anything. With a little
checking, you should be able to determine what the correct power should be,
probably between 14-19v
