Hardware, Embedded Systems "I had reduced the size of my ongoing Z80 project down to something more wieldy by using CPLD chips, but it was still a bit too bulky to fit into an acceptably sized case. The next step was to look into FPGAs and see where they could take it. One thing led to another and I ended up building a self contained post modern home computer laptop.. thing."

I may have some old 5-1/4 inch CP/M disks (for the Apple II with a Z80 card) lying around. However, it's been over 25 years since they were last accessed, and I make no claim as to their readability.

You want CP/M? You can have it on an AVR! (with emulated Z80). See here: http://spritesmods.com/?art=avrcpm

I admit, it's a lot more of a hack than the Z80 laptop, and it doesn't have its own keyboard and screen. But it's still a very cool hack in my opinion.
