    An Intel 80286 *and* 8042! There is so much wrong with the post, I just can't take it seriously.

    The Portable II is hardly a lunchbox. It is slightly smaller than the original Portable...

    OP doesn't know what they're posting about. This thread should be closed.

    One of a kind? Laptop? Itís neither! The Portable II was a mass-produced computer, and is a luggable, not a laptop. There IS a difference.

    That being said, they are very cool and I love mine, but letís keep things real here...

    Realistically, itís a $50 to $150 machine depending on condition. I think I gave $70 or $80 for the one I got last year.
