    Repairing the World's First Laptop! (Epson HX-20)

    element14 Presents  |  MAYER MAKES VCP Profile  |  Project Videos



    Clem stumbled upon a gem at a flea-market! An Epson HX-20, the worlds first Laptop! Not a luggable computer like the SX64 or others but a real portable unit! He even got the Manual, Carry Case and PromoMaterial with it! Only gripe is that it does not work. Clem fixes his precious retro computer by spot welding an NIMH-battery pack and troubleshooting the keyboard and screen!
