Description:

The Vectra Portable CS was the portable version of the Vectra CS. The Portable CS had a large LCD screen as well as CGA adaptor for use with an external monitor. The Portable was offered in two mass storage configurations: dual 3.5 inch (1.44 MB) floppy disc drives - P/N D1001A, or a floppy disc drive and a 20 MB hard disc drive - P/N D1009A. The Portable CS did not succeed due to its large size (much larger than the Portable Plus), relatively high price and non-standard media (3.5 inch discs).

The Portable Vectra CS was introduced on September 1, 1987. It was discontinued on May 1, 1989.

Collector's Notes:

As of 2013, it is common for these computers to have a variety of problems. About forty percent of the units we have at the museum work reasonably well. The most common problems that these computers can have are screen issues. It is also common for the hard disc to be bad.
