Psion Series 5 Handheld Computer In Box Used Working Software Memory Card Cable:
$85

Up for consideration is a boxed Psion 5 Handheld / Palmtop Computer. It includes the original box with original information sleeve, original plastic tray insert, original spiral bound user guide, complete jewel case PsiWin 2 software, original Psion Series 5 serial cable, Psion Series 5 computer, Psion Series 5 branded original stylus, and a 64MB SanDisk CompactFlash memory card.I purchased this about ten years ago as old stock and used it off and on for a couple years for developing newsletter articles while on the go. Its spent the past seven or so years in the box, in a drawer of my workstation as I no longer work away from my office.The outer box sleeve is pretty tattered, as it was when I bought it. The inner box is in good shape, while the user guide is complete and in excellent shape, as is the included copy of PsiWin 2. The serial connection cable is original Psion branded and is complete without any breaks and works correctly.The Psion Series 5 itself is in really good condition without any cracks or breaks in the plastic housing, including around the side hinges. The keyboard is complete and accurately responsive with no damaged or missing keys. The screen is in good condition with no cracks or dead areas in the touch panel. The backlight works correctly as well and has even illumination. All panels and doors are in place. The original Psion stylus is included and nests properly into the computer, however it will need to be cycled a few times to get it to consistently eject smoothly once more.Psion Series 5's have a textured coating on the top half of the clamshell that tends to flake away with use and handling. I completely and cleanly peeled this coating away from the top half of the computer back when I bought it as it was already flaking from age. The plastics are smooth and non-sticky but I wanted to mention this for full disclosure.A SanDisk branded 64MB CompactFlash card is included in this sale and will give you more storage space on this device than you'll ever need. It's formatted and ready to go and was the card I myself used with this computer.It is fairly well-known that all folding Psion handheld computers have a design flaw with the tooling of the ribbon cable that connects the display to the computer. Over time this ribbon cable can wear out and tear, severing the connection between the top and bottom halves of the computer. While this is not a problem with this particular Psion 5 AT THIS TIME, and it is functioning 100% AT THIS TIME, I CANNOT GUARANTEE the longevity of this piece of hardware - you are buying a VINTAGE PIECE OF COMPUTING HARDWARE. It was always taken care of, but I have Psion 3a's and 3c's that were also well taken care of that had this problem develop over time.NO BATTERIES ARE INCLUDED IN THIS sale DUE TO USPS REGULATIONS!! You will need a pair of standard AA batteries to power the computer and a CR2032 to act as a memory backup.I believe the starting price is fair, along with free Priority Shipping - but I am absolutely open to a Best Offer!This item will ship in a BOX via USPS Priority Mail with Delivery Confirmation for FREE.If you are offerding through a third-party sale broker, mail forwarding service or similar business you do so on this sale with the explicit understanding that I am only responsible for shipping to the confirmed USA address.
