    So, what do you anticipate the price will be for a fully assembled and tested bundle?


    I plan to publish the project, also I'm willing to give away some of the prototype boards. With dirtypcbs you always get 10 but in fact I always only use one of each (be warned they all have minor errors, these are prototype boards, errata will be made available). So it is something only for the brave and adventurous

    Well done on putting this together.

    Who'll be first to build a PDPortable? Think portable like the first Compaq/luggable.


    The whole thing weights about half a kilo, is about 10cmx10cmx15cm big and draws less than 1A at 5Volts. So the size of a Compaq Portable III or IV can be easily achieved, just need to add one of my small VT100 emulator projects to it.

    Perhaps I will go even further. This setup is in fact only the absolute minimum for a decent system. MSCP and DELQA are still on the wish list.

    I perfectly know what you mean. But that's life. That is also the reason that this project (see wish list above) will now be put a little bit on-hold.

    I haven't seen the date being announced so far. But good to know it is planned for the 24th & 25th, I'll reserve the date and make the system ready for Zürich.

    Servus Peter,

    did you plan to publish the schematics of your pdp11/p ?

    I will, once I find the time to start my own home-page.
