Zenith ZWL-183-93

The image is clickable

198?.

Zenith Data Systems has released quite a number of portable computers of which this is one of the line. It is quite difficult to find relevant information, but some peculiarities seems some of the models have in common. Inter alia is ZWL-183-93 quite similar to Z-158. This power-efficient Intel 8088-based computer does not accept the expansion card. It has one for its time fairly advanced liquid crystal display. The disk drive is smart positioned as a "pop-up" unit, and the other may be replaced by a hard drive, if you like. If you needed a 5.25" disk drive, you could have it as an external accessories, as well as a power cabel which you could connect to the lighter in the car.

Is there any errors? e-mail and correct me!
