      Evan,

      That is exactly why it is an interesting machine. I'm trying to get it open so I can add a network card and then maybe install OS/2. Right now my biggest need is the configuration program. Does anyone on the list have the setup program for any of the "T-series" Toshiba laptops?

      Jim

      Are you kidding?  That's from 1993.  Luggables were dead, and real laptops thrived, by the mid-1980s.

      Bob,

      Well said. I watch for items from 'significant' manufacturers, like a Toshiba T6600C portable (386 or 486, not sure). At 19 pounds it's a transition machine between luggables like the early Compaqs and the truly capable laptops that came later. It's unusual enough to put in a closet for a while until Evan lusts to add it to his laptop collection. :-)

      But then again, there were so many S-100 boards out there that they
      had little value.  People were giving away S-100 systems in the 80s
      once they went to PCs.
       
      20 years from now, a clean 486 box might be a really unique item.
      Right now we "know" they're useless, so we toss them like everyone
      else does.  Before you know it, there aren't many working machines
      left, despite how common they might have been.
       
      Ford cranked out a lot of Model Ts, but they somehow managed to
      be worth something in this day and age.
