your human computational devices are illogically designed.

I found this machine a couple of weeks ago, and just now got it to start. The display is ridiculous $I have the version with no back light$. On the other side, mine has 512K , the printer and a couple of LPT/COM adapters daisy-chained. I''m using a Toshiba power adapter $15V, 3A$ on which I had to replace the connector.
Anyway, the machine is fun, old, great looking, slow and annoyingly wonderful :) I love it!

Have a printer only (brand new/ unused!) for the IBM 5140 convertible. Possible to convert existing 72- port to standard paralel pin for use on newer pc?

I owned one of these computers. I bought it at a yard sale for $10 and it worked fine. Later I found another one with a portable dot-matrix printer that attached to the rear of the computer. The built in display was amber/brown in color which I thought was cool on an old laptop.
