Drawbacks of the Vulcan Flipstart

OK, so here's the drawbacks i collected... - Pretty heavy. Despite the small size it is nearly 2 pound, so more than double the weight than some competitors - Fat. While i like the small size the height of the unit is too much for my liking. Even more when you use the extended battery. - The little ...

Gecko Edubook

Does anyone else have one of these cute AA-Battery powered netbooks?

I really love mine. One small upgarde i thought about was switching the screw of the battery department to one you can open with a coin. Does anyone know how these screws are called or where you get them?

New Database

So i finally made a small database that shows the DOS Palmtops in a nice grid. Advantage of a real database is the sorting capabilities. Here's the basic table: http://tankraider.com/database/table.php Thinnest Palmtops: http://tankraider.com/database/thinnest.php Fastest Palmtops: http://tankraider...

Re: Help... Looking for a 386 or 486 DOS AA palmtop to do all this:

Sorry for the late reply - owner here - but we had some issues with the database after upgrading the hosting platform of this website. You may have noticed that there's not much choice regarding a 386/486... 1. Classic is obviously the Tidalwave PS-3000 - but it is rare as hens teeth. So actually un...

Re: Hello?

Yeah already some good tips there! I'd also suggest to check out local flea markets, garage sales, estate sales and such. The thing is that most people who sell an item on the internet check out something like ebay for prices first and thus often have rather steep ideas for a final price. People at ...

Re: Your favorite vintage non-palmtop computer?

I used to have one of these and always tried to justify using it by finding a way to program a killer app. Best i could come up with was a database for my VHS collection. Which honestly was not so much ahead of a sheet of paper. XD I always hated these for the display, so I'd be curious to hear abou...

Re: Your favorite vintage non-palmtop computer?

Well if a unit is rare and historically important then i got no problem with high prices. But for the Apple II i think one should take into account that Over 6 million units were sold (if you count all Variations like II Plus, IIC and so on). So even if 90% of these went to the trash (unlikely) that...
