Mitac 1600A Palmtop PC

The Mitac 1600A Palmtop PC is a DOS-based palmtop computer. It is equivalent to a fast PC-AT, with DOS5 and Microsoft Works in ROM. It comes with 300KB RAM by default and can take two standard PCMCIA cards to expand this. The LCD screen can display a 25x80 text screen or greyscale CGA graphics.

Our 1600A comes with a cable that allows it to connect to a Centronics printer port and a 9-pin serial port.
