General info
The Toshiba Tecra is a series of business laptops, introduced in 1996, manufactured by the Japanese corporation Toshiba. The non silver grey Toshiba laptops from the period 1994-2000 are exceptionally well designed with long lasting components. An IBM Thinkpad from this era is known for its alleged build quality, but a Toshiba laptop from the 90's actually is well built.
About this specific offer

This Toshiba Tecra 8000 is a model PAT800E-K943-NL. It is one well preserved specimen. This Tecra 8000 is, despite its business origin, equipped with hardware which makes it also very usuable for MS-DOS retro gaming enthusiasts, such as the 14.1'' TFT LCD with 16.7 million colors at 1024x768p and the Yamaha OPL3-SA3 FM-synthesis IC with Sound Blaster Pro emulation. Apart from that it is equipped with a VGA output so it can display a nice picture on a conventional 4:3 flatscreen monitor. You can read and write data from and to 3.5'' disk, USB stick (Windows 98SE and USB driver required) and read from CD-ROM / CD-R / CD-RW. This laptop has an international QWERTY keyboard.

Power is supplied by the original Toshiba PA2450U external power supply (100-240V AC) and an original Toshiba PA2510U 3750mAh battery.

This laptop does not have an operating system installed. It can among others be installed with Microsoft Windows 95, 98SE, NT 4.0 or 2000 Professional. It is also compatible with most MS-DOS software.
