    Wow I had a pentium 120mhz Compaq Armada when I was 10 in 2000. I sniped it on eBay for 92$. It had a seperated battery/handle. But it also could take a docking station like that. Mine only had a floppy and 11.1k modem.

    The windows package was very nice before like that in 5'1/4 version and it's looks very serious. You buy an heavy package included inside the box of the computer. It was a pleasure to open all packages. When you saw an package like that, you knew it was serious only seeing outside and inside. Compaq was up HP for me before but HP bought Compaq with an woman presidence.

    I had one of those 5280's that I dialed up to the 9s in the early 2000s. Had multiple hard drive caddies so I could swap and run different OSes. Loved it because it was a workhorse. Took mine everywhere. The modular ports could hold a floppy, CD ROM or a battery. That is why the battery has the door that extends to the right. You could put it in a modular port and pull the door over to cover the rest of the slot. At the time, with two batteries in the laptop, I would use it for tuning WiFi shot lines and scouting interference. I heard from a Compaq rep about a "workstation" base and hunted around for one. There was another, smaller base that didn't have speakers or the ISA slot that I had, but that usually stayed at work. Mine had a plastic monitor shelf that curved over the back and fit into those two sockets in the top front. The battery disk indicators were aligned to being able to max out each, and indicated which on was indicated by the quadrant of the machine the port was on. The IrDA in the base was really hit or miss but the one on the laptop always worked better. I tried using the Compaq Hardcard accessory in the ISA slot on the base, but it kept locking up, so I replaced it with an ethernet card. I remember the speakers as being pretty good as I used to listen to the GITS soundtrack on it often while working. Somewhere I have a picture of that machine, the dock, a Handspring Visor and a 17" CRT as my home workstation. Used that for about 4 -5 years before getting an IBM from work and using that moving forward. It also came with a "wireless modem" set up. It wasn't cellular, but an RF telephone accessory that worked with a base and a cordless modem. Was kinda cool as a gimmick. Could support 28.8 if you used the phone port on the remote or 33.6 if you used their special PCMCIA modem. Worked so long as you a) didn't really move around and b) no one tried to use another cordless telephone. Even when the phone was on a different line, it would still kick you offline with CRC errors. I kinda miss those workstation docks. Yeah, the new usb c stuff allows for more diversity, but give me one of those old LTEs or a MacBook Duo for looks any day!

    I think those speakers at 11:20 were made for a launch event of a new product. I have already worked as a journalist doing reviews and hardware analisis. The big companies always invite the websites and partners for produt launches and they always gift us at the events with some of these things.. It can go from a paper notepad to a custom flash drive with the brand logo or some really unique things, like those speakers.... for an example: I have here an "AMD Fusion portable battery speaker" ... some AMD Bulldozer Dogtags, a Intel Pillow and some classic stuff like some plush Intel Astronauts from pentium era...

I carried a Compaq laptop very similar to this one back in the day when I worked in the oilfield offshore. It was actually a pretty rugged beastie.

    The cyrix Media GX was a terrible, terrible CPU and things like this are why they are out of business. I think it has built in sound and video on chip. I had a laptop in 1998 that had a 233 mhz Media GX CPU that ran about the same speed as a pentium 133. There is a YT video titled "How Quake Killed Cyrix" or something similar that describes their wear FP calculation performance.
