PowerBook 190cs


Although the PowerBook 190cs was the last 100-series PowerBook, it was in name only. The case and architecture were lifted directly from it’s PowerPC superior, the PowerBook 5300. Driven by a 68LC040 processor, it shored up the low-end PowerBook slot.

The PowerBook 190cs featured a 33 MHz Motorola 68LC040 processor, 8 MB RAM, a 500 MB IDE hard disk drive, a 1.44 MB floppy disk drive in a swappable drive bay and a 10.4 inch 256-color passive-matrix LCD. It sported external serial, ADB, SCSI, IrDA and color video ports in back and a dual PC-Card slot on the side.

This PowerBook 190cs features a 500 MB hard disk drive and 16 MB RAM. It boots to the original System 7.5.2.
