|Compaq Contura 4/25c||by Bill Degnan - 02/09/2009 07:57|
The Compaq Contura 425c. Note that the pointing device for this laptop was a detachable trackball mouse, which allowed for a larger keyboard. There is a spring that is used to clamp the trackball to the side of the keyboard on the side front.
The Compaq Contura 4/25c is a 486 laptop that I used to support when I worked at Zeneca in the early 1990's. The Contura was a lighter-weight Compaq laptop of the early 1990s. I received this computer with Windows 95 installed, but it would have come with Windows 3.1. I tested the modem and it worked. The battery needs to be replaced, it would not hold a charge.
