The Smallest Windows PC in 1995 Was Also a Phone! IBM Palm Top PC110

January 8, 2021 by 33 Comments

Not only was the IBM PalmTop PC 110 the world’s tiniest DOS and Windows subnotebook in 1995 but it also functioned as a telephone handset! Let’s take a look at this fantastic little 33MHz 486 computer from the mid ’90s, which also strove to be a personal organizer, a digital notepad, a desktop clock, a portable fax machine, and a digital camera all in one handheld device.

    LGR has been making some of the most consistent and highest quality content on YouTube for over a decade. I can stop watching for months, and randomly think of the channel, and come back and there's a bunch of new uploads that are just as good as all of my favorite videos by him. The only thing that changes about the channel is the production value keeps increasing, the scale and ambition of the videos keeps growing, the community gets bigger, and now there's even more content with the two extra channels. If you were going to pick a favorite youtuber, you truly can't go wrong with Clint.

    Never change sir.

  4. This is cool! Now I want one

    So many options and so easy to expand, notebooks nowadays only have 2 usb-c ports and absolutely no expansion options.

    " apparently External hard drives were a new concept so it was expensive and it only maxed out to 1TB"
