Lately my old laptop died(maybe not but it seems so) , for reasons unknown(flashes and then turns off within 3 seconds) and i would like to share it with you. It is a 1997-8 Toshiba Satellite 220CDS and it had 64k of Ram and also had a external floppy drive with the strangest connecter . Sadly it died last Tuesday and I was unable to take a screen shot. It ran Windows 95(B?) Please post info of your first laptop below. Thanks

My first laptop was a Apple Powerbook G3 "Wallstreet" I bought it used for $1000 USD in the year 2000. I liked it a lot and sold it when I got the new dual usb iBook. I sold it for what I paid for it. It was sold in 2001 when the first iPod came out. So, I was on cloud 9. I had a new iBook and the new iPod. It was a good time. Now I'm waiting to get my new MacBook Air in the mail. I have a few computers so don't feel too sorry for me I buy stuff sometimes just because I can.

Favourite OS All Microsoft operating systems!
My first portable system was a Hewlett Packard palmtop system with Windows CE 2.1, Pocket Internet Explorer, and Pocket Office. It still works, but I haven't used it in quite a while, also, although this doesn't have anything to do with why I don't use it as much as I used to, the stylus seems to be lost.
My first laptop/notebook system was a Sharp PC/3070, with Windows 95 OSR 1, Microsoft Internet Explorer 4.0 with the shell update (later downgraded to Internet Explorer 2.0 when I had to reinstall Windows in a different directory when the old Windows installation was damaged), and Microsoft Works 3.0. Unfortunately, a couple of years ago, the system stopped working, though I still think that it might only be the power supply.
