The next machine in our #VintageComputers series is the Toshiba T3100e, the second laptop we’ve featured so far. The Toshiba T3100e was not a true portable, because it needed an external power source in all versions except the last. The screen was considered high resolution for its time at a whopping 640x400gas-plasma display.
The Toshiba T3100e came with the following specs:


  • 8 MHz Intel 80286 CPU
  • 640 kB RAM (upgradable to 2.6 MB)
  • 10 MB hard drive
  • internal 3,5″ floppy drive 720 kB
  • connector for external 5,25″ floppy drive, 360 kB
