    Default Any PC on a chips?

    I know they got those NOAC things that are easier to get tjan sliced bread and they made an atari one(flashback 2) and commmodore 64(DTV joystick) so is there a PC on a hip to make some kind of PC laptop that never was.
    IBM 5145 hehe: 640k RAM, 8088, HxC, CF card, and a nice full color active matrix display instead of those wide screen nasty blue buggers from 1987.
    Wanted: Any old clunky 286-P1 machine that has some kind of working battery or replaceable with off the shelf parts. Preferred: 10+lbs 386 machines.

    There was something like that a few years back:

    Personally I'd love to have a dual-SD card variant that looks like a 5150/5160 with two floppy drives.

    There were many XT, AT, and later system-on-a card computers. There must be hundreds of thousands of RPi sized Windows95 installations out there in Mitsubishi 6xx series CNC controls (including Mazak Fusion) alone.

    Considering how well Dosbox/PCEM runs, you have a plethora of cheap options, just about any netbook instantly turns into a great MS-DOS machine.

    Technically a modern machine is running on silicon, if you want to be technical.
    IBM PS/2 Model 25, NEC V30 8MHz, 640KB RAM, ATI VGA Wonder XL, 2GB SSD, Ethernet, DR DOS 6/GeOS, Xircom PE3 Ethernet

    Im in the process of making the MCL86 open source, so if someone wants to integrate it into a project then let me know. The core is cycle accurate to 4.77Mhz so it can run timing-sensitive programs like the 8088 MPH demo.

    The Next186 SOC core appears to consume around 95% of the Lattice XO2-7000; perhaps due to the integrated peripherals. The MCL86 8088 core consumes less than 10%,
