Summary
  • Datavue Corp's Spark laptop computer is recommended for users that need a simple IBM PC-compatible laptop for applications such as memo-writing and planning weekly expenses. The $995 configuration comes with 384Kbytes of RAM, one 3.5-inch floppy disk drive, a NEC V20 microprocessor with a top speed of 9.24 MHz, and weighs nine pounds. The keyboard has a compact, comfortable feel, and a long battery life of six hours on a full charge. The laptop slots include spaces for a serial, parallel, an RGB, and composite video connection, and a slot for an external 5.25-inch floppy disk drive. The screen is readable, but the lack of backlit illumination does not recommend usage over an extended period of time. Spark is 15 to 20 percent slower than the NEC Multispeed, which has a 9.54-MHz CPU and lacks a hard disk option.
