The Machine Room is Back!
This is the recovered Machine Room from 2005. Please don't expect wonders. The look and feel of this site is nine years old, and so is its code. Some of the functionality has been recovered while the rest of the site is modernised and restructured. Watch this space!

One of the first notebooks (rather than laptops), the PX-8 sports the essential multi-coloured keyboard, a folding LCD screen and a micro-cassette drive (the dark thing under the screen) under complete computer control. Too complete: the built-in CP/M thinks it's a disk drive.
