The Goupil Golf is a 16-bit portable computer launched in 1989, towards the end of Goupil's life. It has a 10mHz 286 processor, 640k RAM with 4MB expanded memory, 40MB hard drive and a 3.5-inch floppy drive.
It has a 320p monochrome LCD that is powered from the primary unit with a folding stand which closes and locks down on the base for transporting. One of the more unique features is that you can invert the display to a negative or positive setting - as well as controlling the brightness and contrast.
For expandability there is a single ISA slot, and software-wise it has MS-DOS and Windows 3.1, which is in French. MS Office is also installed.
The system was not on the market long as Goupil were struggling against the marketing might of companies such as Compaq, who were producing as powerful machines for increasingly less money.
From its brochure:
Goupil Golf system unit is very compact (67 x 335 x 370 mm) and light (3.7 kg), and includes:
Our machine was very kindly donated by Robert Burford.
