Summary
  • Datavue Corp's $995 Spark is a bargain for users who need the capability to work in places that do not have electrical outlets. The Spark has an eight-hour internal battery and a 3.5-inch disk drive. The unit weighs nine pounds and measures 2.5 inches high, by 13.2 inches wide, by 13 inches deep. The Spark microprocessor runs at 9.54MHz, switchable to 4.77MHz, and provides quicker execution of software functions than the 8088 chip used in IBM PC XTs and compatibles. The liquid crystal display is not as sharp as a backlit LCD, but is as good as similar LCDs in other laptops. The Spark comes with one 720Kbyte floppy drive, 384Kbytes of RAM, standard serial, parallel, color and monochrome terminal ports, plus an external floppy drive port and an external bus port.
