HP 320LX Palmtop PC - Microsoft CEO Summit Edition

This is a special edition of the standard HP 320LX that has been branded with the Microsoft CEO Summit logo on the top left hand of the case. It was a presentation gift at the first CEO Summit in Seattle in 1997.

The HP 320LX is a palmtop computer that runs Windows CE 1.0 or, with a ROM upgrade, Windows CE 2.0. It has a CompactFlash type 1 card slot, a PC card slot, a serial link cable plug, and an infra-red port. It was released in 1997.


It is Internet capable by attaching an add-on modem or through an ethernet or wifi card (Windows CE 2.0 only) in the PCMCIA slot. Only type I and type II PC cards are supported and you need special drivers made for the Windows CE operating system.

Ericsson marketed a re-branded variant of the 320LX named MC12. It consisted of essentially the same hardware but was shipped with a cable and software combo that allowed for using select Ericsson phones as modems.
