GRiD Convertible 486 by ppgrainbow GRiD Convertible 486 by ppgrainbow
(Please full view this photo for the complete details.)

This is the first time that I've taken a photo of something and posted it here on my deviantART account. This is a photo of my very old pentop PC, the GRiD Convertible 486 Model 2270.

I had it for over a year now. The colours on the monochrome display are inverted. But if you look at this screenshot taken using the 16-bit version of Paint Shop Pro 3.11, the display isn't inverted and if you look closer, you'll find a few useful apps running in the background including TriPeaks and Crystal Caliburn.

Anyways, does anyone of you own a old desktop, laptop or a tablet PC? If so, I want to see what it looks like. :D

I used to have it, but it doesn't work anymore after more than two years. :(

That's pretty cool! Is that Windows 3.0 or 3.1?

Strange you would ask...

Still being used:
486sx25mhz Intel tower with monochrome monitor. This has been logging my weather station info for many years. The program runs on DOS 6.22. It needs 801K of continuous RAM to run, so anything VGA or EGA will not work because color uses memory in the 700K range. Monochrome used a higher area of RAM. The monitor is a 9 or 10 inch screen gleaned from some ancient Apple one piece thing.

Also still have my PC-XT 8mhz case although it's been internally upgraded to 233MHX MMX and used as a print server. This is as far as the old AT power supply and AT motherboard footprint will go. To upgrade further, I would have to modify the back of the case. Since the XT was my 1st computer, it has some sentimental value, so I keep the case in tact.

Pentium 75 laptop from the late 90's still being used at work running WIN 95 because the TFT screen can be seen well outside in daylight. In runs terminal emulation programs to connect to roadside communications equipment.

I also have some still working 486 laptops but no longer use. But as a pack rat, I still have them.
