Specs: MS-DOS / Windows 3.1, 386/486 & 8 MB Ram
Hi all.

I am looking for a WORKING laptop that either has or in compatible with Windows 3.1. I would like for it to have either a 386 or 486 CPU, and at least 8 MB of RAM. I have found several on eBay, but I am NOT paying $900 for one. lol. know this is a hard to find laptop, but if anyone can find one or has one they are willing to sell, I would appreciate it.

Thank you : )

Erm... Have you considered using an emulator?

And there are other how to links via Google using the string:

virtual pc and windows 3.1

Unless you're really lucky, finding anything that will run on its own..., and not be paying a humungous price is highly unlikely...?

I've got a few laptops of that vintage around here. I don't know their condition but likely their batteries are no good. I won't be checking them out for awhile because I'm not in the mood for that right now. Maybe in the spring when it's warmer and the birds are chirping and the peach trees are flowering

Ok. If you find one then that is Windows 3.1 compatible, let me know. :)

I'm sure they're 3.1 compatible. There's at least one 486 and maybe a couple of 386. I've never checked them out so I'm not sure of ram or what's installed on them but as long as they have a working floppy and hard drive dos and 3.1 could be installed. They were ones that people dropped off here or I picked up at goodwill.

You're welcome. My stuff got moved around when inlaws moved in. Some of the old laptops are in the garage. I'm not sure about the others.
