New and old, side by side (open)

New and old, side by side (open)

On the left: my beloved ASUS U5F running Arch Linux.

On the right: an old (maybe even very old) laptop, which I took off the top of a bookcase to dust off and photograph. It’s running MS-DOS Version 6.22 off a floppy disk (because the internal hard drive broke down). The hard drive is 80MB and the RAM is 4MB. 😉

It amuses me how they’re so similar in size, but so disparate in capabilities…

By the way, I haven’t been able to find any information on this old laptop model; I’m amazed that even the sieve of Google comes up nigh-empty on the matter.
