Toshiba T5200/200

There are no pictures available for this page. Maybe later?

220V AC
Production year: 0000OS: DOS
Type: PortableSpeed: 20MHzRAM: 2MB
Display: Internal LCD
This portable is not only heavy, but also very sturdy.
Something you notice at once is that there's a combination lock holding the screen closed. Also, on one side is a thin metal eye that folds out, to secure the machine with padlock and chain/wire.
another curiosity is that the screen can be easily removed by unscrewing two screws at the top, then folding down the panel beneath the screen and moving the locking switches there. Why it was built this way I don't know?

The machine has a built-in 200MB HDD(as indicated in the name. It also came in 40 and 100MB) and a 3.5" floppy.

On the rear there's TWO serial ports, a combination FDD/Printer port(switch selectable A:/B:/Printer) and a D15-style 'RGB' video connector.
In addition, there's two ISA ports at the lefthand side.
