Digibarn Systems: Poqet PC

Thanks Mark Bigelow for this donaton of not one, but two Poqet PC plus plenty of documentation. Modeled here by Max the Cat and Al Lundell, these are surprisingly powerful and complete micro-size computer systems from the late 1980s. They also include advanced removable cards with software and a kind of Flash ROM, precursors to the PC-cards of the mid 90s? Donor Mark Bigelow writes:

I have two POQET PCs, palm-top sized IBM PC XT clones, manufactured about 1990. Really unique small machines, especially for their time. Also some of the memory cards, plus Lotus 1-2-3 and Word Perfect on ROM cards, and the documentation. I believe this equipment might fit well into the "hands-on experience" you try to offer. This was an early attempt at minaturization, partly successful, but ultimately a failure. All of the above is working and in very good condition.

From Wikipedia's entry on the Poquet PC:

The Poqet PC is a very small, portable IBM PC compatible computer, introduced in 1989, for $2000 by Poqet Computer Corporation, but is no longer sold, since Fujitsu Ltd. bought Poqet Computer Corp. It was the first subnotebook form factor IBM-PC compatible computer that ran MS-DOS.
