This Notebook Is Loaded

Tandy's 1500 HD is the industry's first under-six-pound notebook PC with standard floppy (1.44MB) and hard (20MB) disk drives. Sporting an internal modem slot, a 25-pin parallel printer port, a 9-pin serial port, a full-size 84-key keyboard, and a high-definition blue-on-white backlit liquid crystal display, the 1500 HD still fits comfortably in a briefcase. For $1,999, you get these features plus 640K RAM, a 10-MHz V-20 micro­processor, and Tandy's Power View battery gauge.


The 1500 HD keyboard has 12 function keys and an embedded numeric keypad.
