Toshiba laptop for sale!

I was at a client the whole afternoon and their office has this section for very old stuff like cameras, videocams, radios and laptops.

So this one is for sale:

Toshiba Laptop Sale


A Toshiba J-3100GT with a 386SX CPU, 8MB hard drive and 1MB RAM running MS DOS.

Toshiba Laptop Sale

And they said it still runs fine until now after 19 years. Tough huh?

Any bids?

    They should donate that to a museum or something. :P

    I remember, though, that I used to run my BBS on a 386SX-based Toshiba satellite. The laptop could run Windows 3.1, btw. But I usually use desQview for my multitasking needs.

    Interesting find. Not necessarily a museum piece, though. I had a very similar laptop sitting in its very expensive leather carry case for years in a closet when I gave it to my son, who does programming for CNC (Computer Numerical Control) machine tools. The coding is all in a sort of simplified assembler code for the machines and each specific program .. like the instructions for drilling holes in a specific part, are stored in DOS .txt files. He uses the laptop to make program corrections and copy programs from machine to machine on the shop floor. Should be good for many more years, and a much more productive machine than many new ‘speed demons’ that just sit on people’s desks while they search the internet, read blogs, play games and peruse the help wanted listings ;-)

    I have a P1 laptop of not much greater spec that I use in my business to upgrade, set up and troubleshoot sophisticated GPS satellite terminals. They take their input/output through a ‘real’ serial port (craft port in the trade) and do not work well with modern USB-based serial port emulators. I couldn’t sell or service these terminals with my modern, high-end laptop … no serial port and no floppy drive to receive upgrades from the manufacturer.

    And perhaps the ‘old iron’ champion … inside the NORAD Cheyenne Mountain facility here in Colorado Springs (yes, the one that “War Games” popularized) is the main board of a Sinclair ZX-81. I used to teach logic and digital I/O troubleshooting there years ago and I brought in the Sinclair for the students to connect a sophisticated logic analyzer to for training. Last I checked it was still in regular use, training Air Force computer technicians … it’s been in service at least 25 years.

    Old doesn’t always mean useless, at least for machines that work for a living as opposed to writing about work.

  4. “Old doesn’t always mean useless …”

    I agree, Dave. My present workhorse is a ~6 year old ThinkPad. I’m probably more productive here than on my newer, more powerful desktop (which I usually use for games, anyway). IMHO, laptops are always better when it comes to writing work (I love the ergonomic benefits of trackpoints, too).

    I still got a functioning commodore 64..and an Apple IIc

  8. george washington says:

    how much are you asking for it and do you still have it.

  9. Nick says:

    I have to agree with jangelo, a museum probably will buy that for a much higher price as compared to some buyer out here on the net or off the street.

    How much is the prise

  13. Chonabell Aquia says:

    Dave Starr You are stupid and OLD HAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!
    Old Computers can not work after that long because moist and bacteria will find ways to gather up and damage the innards of your system. You just made that story up and also you don’t know what new computers are capable because you don’t use one and don’t understand how it functions…

  14. paula says:

    help anyone?:) i have a new toshiba laptop but it’s os is in italian language how can i convert it to english?tnx..

  15. Eric says:

    @ Chonabell: What you said is not really true. Old stuff that are regularly used and maintained can still function reliably as can be noted on most power generating plants (where upgrading a system can mean a downtime of more than a week, so they don’t bother). My brother has an old laptop from the early 90s which runs win98se and all the apps in there just fine. I’ve booted up a 386-based PC with sub-MB RAM that still run up to this day even though it’s been stored in a de-humidified display case for several years. It all depends on how the equipment is used (or abused).

    @Paula: best way to convert it to English is to install a new OS. Goodluck!

    Like I said Toshiba brand lasts longer than any other brands…, I have so many saved gay porn files in my laptop,, until now I still masturbate to them frequently using my Toshiba notebook,, I did not encounter any problems with the battery and stuffs.., but sometimes it’s really hard to get an erection.. especially when I’m with a group of friends and colleagues…, I’m kinda shy in a way.., but my Toshiba makes me conquer my insecurities and my passion.. I love this brand..

    One good advantage is they are cheaper in lionoutlet. Also look for open box items. I found an open box Macbook on lionoutet cheaper than the refurb of the same model Apple was selling. Was absolutely nothing wrong with the Macbook and came with a standard Apple warranty.Their Customer Service is Superior.
