"Compared with modern PCs which practically require a 4 year computer science degree to program C++ with Visual Studio and GDI, these were designed to be simple enough for a mere rocket scientist to use"

Fair use rationale for Image:Hp9830a-1m.gif[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg

Image:Hp9830a-1m.gif is being used on this article. I notice the image page specifies that the image is being used under fair use but there is no explanation or rationale as to why its use in this Wikipedia article constitutes fair use. In addition to the boilerplate fair use template, you must also write out on the image description page a specific explanation or rationale for why using this image in each article is consistent with fair use.

Please go to the image description page and edit it to include a fair use rationale. Using one of the templates at Wikipedia:Fair use rationale guideline is an easy way to insure that your image is in compliance with Wikipedia policy, but remember that you must complete the template. Do not simply insert a blank template on an image page.

If there is other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified the fair use rationale on the other images used on this page. Note that any fair use images uploaded after 4 May, 2006, and lacking such an explanation will be deleted one week after they have been uploaded, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you.

Hardware details[edit]

The HP 2100 claims "The HP 9810, 9820 and 9830 desktop computers used a slow, serialized TTL version of the 2116 CPU". So does the 9800 series count as serial computers? --68.0.124.33 (talk) 02:28, 26 April 2008 (UTC)

No. What it means is that the input/output of the CPU chip was converted to a serial stream in order to reduce the package pin count. Internal operations were performed in parallel fashion, just like in other CPU chips. Reducing package pin count meant a smaller, cheaper integrated circuit package.—QuicksilverT @ 20:21, 28 December 2010 (UTC)
