The ALT-386SX dates from 1990 and is a laptop computer based on the Intel 80286 (AT) processor. There is also a identical computer based on the Intel 80386SX processor, known as the ALT-386SX.
The specifications are much the same. The computers look identical and use the same battery pack, share a user manual and even service manual. This indicates that many parts can be exchanged between the two models. The ALT-286 comes with a 20 megabyte hard disc, and the 386SX comes with an 80 or 170 megabyte hard disc.
A characteristic design feature of this laptop is the single eccentrically fitted hinge on the Liquid Crystal Display (LCD screen). Instead of in the middle, as you may expect, this is fitted to the extreme right of the base unit.
