The Epson PX-8 was a small laptop computer released in 1984. It was moderately successful after price drops in the USA, and competed against the likes of the TRS-80 Model 100.
The PX-8 did not have any internal disk drive, instead allowing either memory to be partitioned into application memory and a RAM disk, or an external 64 KB or 128 KB RAM disk module to be attached (as our model has). The RAM disk module also had a backup battery for the RAM disk and an additional ROM (64 KB version only) cartridge slot. Data can be saved onto the built-in micro cassette tape drive.
The serial number of our model H101A is 012153.
