California Access CA6100

California Access sold Chinese OEM notebooks in Poland. This model can use normal Socket 7 Pentium processor so it was not  needed to buy more expensive portable processor. It was manufactured near 1997 and sold by Karen, one of bigger notebook seller in Poland. Not much more I can tell about it as I don't have a hard disk cable for it so I can't run any OS.
