Compaq SLT/286

The image is clickable

1988.

SLT/286 is a 6.5 kg "light" computer from Compaq, which was their first laptop with a hard drive. You could get one on 20 MB or 40 MB. The Intel 80286 processor run at 12 Mhz and the LCD screen was 10" (VGA). As a further refinement you could lift down the keyboard for improved comfort. If you added an extra expanditure, there were a docking as an accessory, as well as an external 5 1/4" floppy drive.

A "but" with this machine is the particular contact from the "rectifier" - as it says on the Swedish power supply. It is not as it use to be, a circular socket to fit in with a pin in the center and a sleeve around. Compaq has chosen a solution with 6 pins. Unfortunately, it may be difficult to find a replacement if the original is lost.
