Sharp
PC-7000

Sharp always had a reputation for building technically sound but rather stange computers, ignoring 'industry standards'. The PC-7000 broke this image.

This was a "lunchbox" portable IBM PC compatible system. It had two 5''1/4 disk-drives mounted on the right side and a nice blue tiltable screen, the world's first backlit LCD.

The system consisted of three main parts: system unit, keyboard and optional CE-700P printer. When the system had to be carried, both the keyboard and the printer clipped into the main unit.

One year later (1986) , the PC-7100 was launched. It had a 20Mb hard-disk instead of the second built-in 5''1/4 FDD.

We need more info about this computer ! If you designed, used, or have more info about this system, please send us pictures or anything you might find useful.

Bonjour,
je vend un Sharp PC 7000 en parfait état et complet. (Notice, OS, cables, pochette).
Le rétroéclairage est orange, pas bleu.

I recently acquired a Sharp PC 7100 without documentation. At first sight that was no problem, but all of a sudden the hard disk drive isn''t recognized any more. The drive might be damaged, but maybe just the BIOS settings ( hard disk parameters ) have been $d. The onboard setup routine doesn''t provide settings for the hard drive. So probably there was a floppy disk- based HD-configuration program on the original system disk(s)?
Help, please!! It''s such a cute little ( ok, not really little ) machine!
