HP OmniBook 800CT 5/166 Mini Laptop with Silent SSD Windows 95

This is a unique vintage notebook with a number of neat features:

  • Tiny size (roughly the footprint of a sheet of A4 paper) and solid construction allow you to pop it in your backpack or bookbag, or carry it around like another book in your stack.
  • Despite its size, it's got near full size keys with a solid feel and plenty of key travel! Very unusual for a notebook of this size.
  • Bright, crisp TFT display allows viewing from almost any angle unlike cheaper DSTN or HPA displays (found on entry-level notebooks), which require your eyes to be at the perfect angle with the screen.
  • Reknowned HP engineering and attention to detail, and the OmniBooks are their top of the line notebook series. For example, the display, the thing that normally gets destroyed on notebooks, has a very solid construction that gives you confidence that it will withstand serious abuse. There doesn't seem to be any way to break it short of dropping it off of a building.
  • Last, how could one fail to mention the unique pop-out mouse! It is much closer to a real mouse than any other laptop pointing device. Touchpads and trackpoints simply don't compare. It has no ball (the sensor is internal to the laptop), so it works on any surface (even suspended in mid-air)!
