Hi all my Handle is Sqiril and i have an old Olivetti portable that has the old green screen and massive floppy drive also holds a couple minutes of charge still lol. I dont know much about its worth and am interested in its place in pre mass production history. If anyone can help that would be great
cheers :D

Hi Sqiril,

I moved this from the Introduction to the General forums as you seem to want discussion on this particular machine.

I don't know anything about these computers. What does it look it? Do you know of a link with a picture?

So I'll hazard a guess we're talking about the Olivetti M18P? (http://www.vintage-computer.com/olivettim18p.shtml)
"dsakey" on trademe. Apple II's are my thing.

Euuurgh I just had flashbacks to a Corona Portable I used many years ago! :)
Just the local Commodore hobo and middle-aged PC hoarder.
eisa on Trademe. A lasting reminder of a Compaq fetish when I was younger.
