Technical specifications[edit]

The lineup featured a 13.3" 1024x768 LCD screen that fit into the same weight and thickness as the company's 700 series, which had a smaller 12.1" screen (2.4 kg without optical drive or floppy drive, 2.7 kg with optical drive). Like the 700 series, the 800 series featured removable 3.5" floppy disk and CD-ROM drive and optional docking station. The internal modem was a 56 kbit device.
