For sale is a hard to find Gridcase 230 laptop to add to your collection. These are similar laptops that were used in NASA during the 80s Space Shuttle era. Overall, this Gridcase is in okay-fair shape for its age.
It has some typical wear from years of usage and storage such as scratches and paint chips on the metal case and or nicks. There is some slight oxidation on the port side but not in the port pins ect.There is also an odd ceder/smoke smell to these from the original owners that needs to be cleaned somehow. There is some sticker residue. The display randomly turns on and is bright but blank. I don't hear any posts sounds.
The hinge has a broken piece on the left side I believe. I actually found the piece inside the computer and it is taped inside the battery compartment. The computer seems to power on at random times if your unplug and and plug your power source and then turn the on off switch several times. It may take a many tries of powering the computer on and off and removing and inserting your power source for this to happen.
Note: no power supply is included and the battery is missing from the back. There are no Software ROMS chips in the computer. This sale is for the Grid 230 laptop only as pictured. Ultimate addition to your retro vintage computer collection! This sale is as is and final since due to the age of the system.
It needs a lot of tweaking and care to get it running, however, makes a wonderful display/conversation piece! This sale is as is, not working, and or for parts.Two screws that hold the top back cover in place are missing. I actually have 5 more Grid system laptops from the same era that will be listed soon. Will trade for a running titled Porsche 914 or 944. This item will be packaged into a box with plenty of padding and insured. Makes a great Movie prop!! This sale is final due to the nature of vintage computers and collecting. It is also as is due to our accurate descriptions.
