RE: Sharp PC-7000
A beauty! :-)

Are you still using it? I guess all the old DOS titles work (Harvard Graphics comes to mind somehow).

RE: Sharp PC-7000
Yes, is a great machine.

I am a collector, have more o less 60 computers of 1980...1990 aprox. Commodore, Sinclair, Atari, Amstrad, Tandy Radio Shack, Casio, HP (i have an HP 150!), etc. Use them only like a hobby.

Soft for this machine remember Banner, Paint Shop, Visicalc, PW Writer, etc.... Wink

RE: Sharp PC-7000
Brings back vivid memories!

I worked for Sharp form 1988-2000, and the day I started was given one of these to "use". It very quickly was replaced with an actual PC, but I did have fun playing with this machine. DOS was fun.

If you look closely at the screen shot, you will see the BIOS is from Vadem, a company Sharp worked with for many years, incuding developing the PV-6000 "Tripad" around 1998(?) which was a Windows CE based convertible tablet. Waaay ahead of its time.

Thanks for the short stroll down memory lane.

Thank you!

That's the idea behind the task of restoring or collecting these old computers. Wink

RE: Sharp PC-7000
Nice collection!

I wish I still had my Sharp DOS Palmtop PC (I think it was a PC-3000/3100?) but it was lost long ago.

If only I kept some of the many devices discarded over the years. Fun to play with, and from what I see some of them go for on TAS, I could have made a small fortune. Well, maybe not a fortune, but at least it would have paid for some of my HP collection... Thanks for sharing!

Very nice machine! Unfortunately, in Argentina will not be traded.

We've all been the same. Even some magazines such as Byte, 1970 or 1980 are now worth small fortunes.

A hug.

RE: Sharp PC-7000
I have never been hugged before on a public forum.

I must say, it's much nicer than it may have sounded if someone told me about it.

Hug back. ;-)

Ha ha ha ha!

"A hug" is a very common expression in Spanish, which is used as a parting shot. It's not literal. Unless the party will be, for example, Megan Fox Smile Smile Smile Smile

Check out any forum in Spanish, and you will see many "A Hug!" the end of each postWink
