Compaq Portable 286

The Compaq Portable 286 was released in 1986. It features an Intel 80286 CPU running at 8 MHz and 1MB of RAM (max. 2MB).

Possible storage devices, at the time, were 5.25" floppy drive(s) and/or a 20MB hard drive.

The display was a built-in green mono CRT screen capable of text or graphics in CGA 640 x 200 pixels.

The supplied operating system was MS DOS 3.2.

It has 1 serial and 1 parallel port for connection of peripherals.

The keyboard could be locked on to the front of the main system case, to allow for easy portability. However, it was a heavy item to carry around. The Compaq Portable's were often reffered to as "luggables".
