The Integral PC was a mains-powered portable computer with a 9-inch amber electroluminescent display with a resolution of 512×255 pixels or 80×24 characters. It also incorporated a 710 kB 3.5" floppy disk drive and an HP ThinkJet ink-jet printer. Standard memory capacity was 256 kB ROM plus 512 kB RAM, expandable to 1.5 MB. Expansion slots and an HP-IB bus were also included.
