This is first Russian laptop, made under the brand "Elektronika". Theproduction started in 1991 and lasted not very long due to the high price ofthe device - none of the common people could afford themselves such devices.The price for the computer was around $6000, that equals 25,000 roublesaccording to that time's exchange rate, when the average salary across thecountry was 500 roubles (50 times less!).
At that time there werepracticaly no people who earned a lot and could afford such hardware forpersonal use. It was mainly produced for larger industrial factory engineers sothat they could carry it along with them and plug to the larger machines theyoperated.
It has been reported that not more than athousand of such computers were produced. The exact technical specificationsare not very clear.
According to people who used them thespecifications were as following:
CPU, Intel 8086 clone, with the speed of 4.47 Mhz
Videocard: CGA (It was such a video standard that supported only two colours,black and white)
Screen: Monochrome (black&white) 640x200
HDD: no exact data
Weight: approx. 10 lbs (it was heavy!)
And it seems the exterior was a kind of cloningattempt of Toshiba-3100
It's a very rareexhibit, due to its limited production. Many people even don't know that in thelate 80s there were a laptop production in Russia.
