he Portable PC was IBM's first carry-around PC. It still needed to be plugged in to work and weighed 30lbs, so it was quite a chore to carry around. Introduced in 1984, it offered an XT in a small box. It used the same motherboard as the XT but included a 9" Amber screen built into the case. The keyboard attached to the front of the case making it very simple to carry around, if you could handle the weight of it.

Multiple Items & Job Lots

If you're looking to fit out an entire set and need many items, we are happy to quote a discounted rate based on the quantity of items.

Dry Hire

The term dry hire means to hire an item without having a technician supplied to support it.
