Laptops

There are a number of historical laptop computers (80286 through Pentium) in the collection. Their purpose is primarily to serve as a contemporary "user equipment" for connecting to the Modems and ISDN TAs and running a variety of terminal programs or other client software.

Most of them have been upgraded from spinning hard disks to CompactFlash or PATA SSD devices in order to prevent loss of data due to defective ancient hard disks.

FIXME: Briefly document each laptop with some pictures and the current state in terms of installed software.
