I think it looks fine.
Don't like the color display though, 🤣.
I wish they still made orange gas-plasma displays.
Though I think I already shared where they make EL displays (like the GRiD) for ultrasound machines.
(once I figure out how, I think I'm going to build a custom laptop with a surplus EL display...)
I always thought the T3200 had same size display as T5200?
Or is it just that this display doesn't match?
I keep putting off opening my T5200 up again; every time I open it is an opportunity for something to get broken.
But, I need to sooner or later investigate that capacitor to see why my cmos battery is getting drained almost instantly.
(assuming it's the capacitor).
I've kinda wanted the T5200 to become my main DOS PC; for whatever reason, I really want to do some DOS game programming. I've been working my way through Abrash's black book (well, the chapters on ModeX graphics). I've been currently working in DOSBox using the vintage software tools on my main computer, but it would be nice to fire up that laptop and work on vintage hardware, too.
I hope IanB shows up again soon. I hope he's okay.
So what's your next project?
