Panasonic WL55

Hidden under a cover on the lefthand side is two connectors, one 25pin parallell-port connector, and something which looks almost like a PS/2 connector, but which is used to connect it to the Panasonic KX-WD55 Daisy-wheel printer.

The Panasonic WL55 Lap Top Word Processor
(Yes, that's the way it is written on top of the lid)

The full model no. is KX-WL55, according to the label underneath.

I don't have any information about the Processor as I have yet to open the unit. (It is beautifully built, with not a single visible screw). The amount of RAM is a guess, based on the fact that if it is started and a new Wordprocessor document is started, about 47KB is free for it.

In addition to a wordprocessor program it also has a built-in Spreadsheet, address list(and yes, it can do a mail-merge with it), Spell-checker, Thesaurus, and even an automatic demonstration mode.(Requires a special diskette which I don't have. Hold down the shift key while switching on.)

Documents and user-defined dictionaries are stored on 3.5" diskettes.
