The IBM WorkPad series of PCs, also known as the IBM WorkPad PC Companion, was a line of portable computing devices introduced by IBM in the late 1990s. These devices were designed with the aim of providing professionals with a compact and lightweight computing solution for on-the-go productivity. The WorkPad series was particularly notable for its sleek and ergonomic design, making it highly portable and easy to carry.
The WorkPad PCs were powered by various iterations of the Palm operating system, a precursor to modern mobile operating systems like iOS and Android. They featured monochrome displays and stylus-based input, emphasizing pen-based computing. This made them well-suited for tasks such as note-taking, calendar management, and basic document editing. Despite their limited processing power compared to full-fledged laptops of the time, the WorkPad series offered a convenient and efficient means of managing personal information and performing essential computing tasks while away from the office or home.
Though the WorkPad series was eventually discontinued, it played a significant role in the early development of portable computing technology. Its emphasis on mobility and productivity paved the way for later generations of mobile devices, influencing the design and functionality of modern smartphones and tablets. The legacy of the IBM WorkPad series can still be seen in the portable computing devices we use today.

This Chinese retro console comes w/ 53,000 games (PS1, N64, Dreamcast, Arcade, etc) which sounds great…but it’s not. Bad performance, audio issues and a high price make this a system you probably should stay far away from.
