Overview

The SAIC Galaxy 1100 is a portable PA-RISC workstation based on the regular HP 9000/712 workstation in a ruggedized, portable case. However it is not a notebook since it lacks a battery and needs to be connected to standard AC power input.

The Galaxy 1100 is a very rare system, originally built for military/intelligence applications to the following standards, introduced in 1994.

SAIC developed several special I/O devices attached to the mainboard via GIO/TSIO expansion cards.
