That’s right, it’s not a laptop, it’s a ‘mains portable’ Toshiba T3200 complete with orange and black screen, carry case, all the manuals, and DOS 3.1 on floppy disk. Weighs a TON, from the manual “Weighing only 19 pounds…” And you can run Linux on it www.ailis.de/~k/docs/t3200sxc/

But best/oddest of all. You know how old books have a woodish, dampish old smell. Well old computers have a sort of old warm plasticy smell.
