This 386 SX portable unit has an interesting detachable keyboard. It looks like it should be integrated but it actually comes out. We don't know much else about this machine, so if you do - please let us know!

Hello All! I recently acquired an Acer AnyWhere 1100LX, BIOS: 386SX V1.2R7. I am trying to find system software for the machine. The BIOS runs, and but can not find the OS: Insert system diskette and press <enter> key to reboot. Any help would be most appreciated.

First laptop I ever had. Bought it in Jr High (8 years after it was built), and used it for about four years for word processing. Last I knew it was in my father's garage, he may have thrown it out.

It was my first computer. It is the one which I used for years, doing all sort of things, even drawing a printed circuit board ! I was a student at that time and bought it at an incredible price for that years. Everybody was jealous on me : imagine a student carrying a laptop at that time ! Sometimes the flat cable between the main unit failed, I had to insert a knife (!!) into the hinge to get it working. I replaced it at least 5 times. I remember I was using stacker to "double" my hard disk space :-) This was more a transportable that portable computer. Once I was going to school passing by a field with horses. That day they were particularly hungry and interested by the gigantic carrying bag I had in my hand :-) Believe it or not, the horse went away with it carrying it in his mouth ! I kept it with me for more than ten years in the cellar then decided that it was time to make room. Since my iPhone I never over a computer that much. mgwebmail@fastmail.fm
