The IBM PalmTop PC110

Last updated: 30th January 2000


What, another WindowsCE machine? No - a proper palmtop PC. It's a ridiculous toy - a colour notebook PC that's smaller than a paperback book or a video cassette when closed. It fits into a jacket pocket. It makes noises. It has a built in modem. But, it has no CD-ROM drive, a 33MHz 486 processor, and a tiny keyboard. You'll either love it or hate it. Have a look here for more details and a technical specification, or here for a couple of pictures that give you an idea of its size..

The purpose of these pages is to gather information that users of the PC110 will find helpful, but which might not be available elsewhere. If you want, you can read my long introduction that used to be on this page, that explains a little more about why I bought the PC110 in the first place, and why I decided to start these web pages.

Operating system installation

Unless you can read Japanese, you're going to be installing a new operating system onto your PC110. Or, perhaps you want to put your software back to how it was when you got your PC110. Choose your poison...

Japanese Preload


Windows 3.1

Windows 95

Windows NT

OS/2 Warp

Linux-heads are not catered for here, I'm afraid. I haven't dabbled enough in that area to hope to give any definitive information. Try the Linux mailing list, or these PC110/Linux links.

Device driver matrix

Check the driver matrix, which covers device support for DOS, Windows 3.1, Windows 95, Windows NT, and OS/2 Warp.
