Surprisingly, the T1100 Plus and T1200 lap-tops have not been available in Toshiba Corp’s home market, but the company has remedied that by capitalising on the success of the J-3100 and bringing them in as the Eclipse J-3100 SL lap-top, with a liquid crystal display in place of the plasma, enabling the things to be run off batteries where the standard J-3100 has to run off the mains: the new models use the 80C86 rather than the 80286, and the Model 011 with a 10Mb hard disk and 720Kb 3.5 floppy is $2,750, the Model 002 has two floppies and costs $2,100; they add Japanese language processing to the foreign versions, and have a resume function which enables applications to be picked up where they were left when the power was switched off; operating systems are Japanese MS-DOS 3.1 and original American MS-DOS.
