We had many hand me down computers growing up but this is the one I loved the most. Maybe it was that pack up portability or super crisp text on the screen. I remember spending hours playing in a text editor...exploring all the menu items to see what they would do. If anyone has a PC-7000 and wants to sell it let me know nelson1707 at Mac.com

Hi, my dad owned the Sharp 7100 and i assume like the 7100 the 7000 does not have a internal Batterie (except for BIOS) It only had a big 3 Pin Powersupply.
I learned programming on that the 7100- loved it. The internal display only was capable displaying Letters (i think it was 25 Lines and 80 Columns letters) the 7100 had an external Monitorport (I think it must be the 15 Pin that is often called vga-port but i don''t know if it was VGA or CGA or something) Only the external display was able to display graphics (i had to switch to another graphicmode to enable the external display and then i could draw sprites into the videoram). With the square on the right you can change the angle of the display to come out a bit and there was a weel at the top of this square to change the contrast.
i can confirm the 7100 has a 20mb harddisk and one 5 1/4 floppy drive.
some years ago i heared my father has thrown it away :''( (even if it was still working and had absolute no damages or scratches)
