I would love to have the Zenith, if you could just shoot me an email about shipping and handling that would be cool!

After 30 years of running my business I am retiring by the end of the year. For the first 8 years or so we were a ZDS dealer and I have seen them all. Z150m Z160, Z386, Z86, the whole offering.
The purpose of this post is that I have a Z160 in pristine running condition with a 20MB hard drive $ 5.25" FDD that I am willing to GIVE AWAY at no cost other than packaging $ shipping fees. I also have a Compaq Portable in the same shape. There are no strings, I just think it would be nice for Zenith people to get the Z160.

This was my first real computer. My employer at the time had one and wanted to get a different model. They sold it to me by letting me pay weekly with a little out of my paychecks for a year. It had 384K RAM that I expanded to 640K. I also took out a floppy drive and added a 20MB hard drive. It did have a socket for an 8087 chip. The monochrome monitor was clear, but the PC released a ton of radio interference from the video adapter. The neighbor upstairs complained that when I''d load a video game on it, he could see the video on his television overpowering his own antenna reception. I gave it to a friend after I got a Northgate 386 PC. When she passed away, I helped clear out her apartment and it wound up getting thrown away. I still regret doing that as I''d love to have it back again. One day I''ll find one somewhere for sale.

I still have one of these in running order! From time to time I get it out to prove the point that despite all the GigaHertz of CPU ... I can enter information ''almost'' as fast today as I could in the mid-80''s !! Roll on the semantic web when we ca re-use information... I think that will make a big difference. In the meantime, I gracefully concede when I compare modern browsing to the Z-160 capability... compuserve on 300 baud was sloooooowwwwwww! $-)

I just bought one of these. The unit has a Yellow Bar across the CRT when on, cant see anything else....
I read William Pociengel had one and he overclocked it, but had to adjust the video... I think thats what I need to do... William Pociengel, can you shed some light on this for me???? Thanks
