It was in 1990 that Sharp introduced three new PC XT type laptops that would replace the old PC-4602 and PC-4641 models. The new laptops were much lighter than more than their predecessors and sport TST LCD displays capable of displaying 25 lines of 80 characters in CGA mode at a resolution of 640~400 pixels. The V40 CPU runs at 10 MHz and the computer has 640 Kb of memory. Data storage comprises of two 1.44 floppy drives and a 40 Mb hard disk with preinstalled MS-DOS 3.3.

This was my first laptop ever, bought around 1991 for my birthday, and still the best laptop I ever had. Even though it was just a DOS system, I did amazing things (at that time) with it. I was incredibly attached to it, and hated when it finally died. Using it was such a revelation to me.

The one I have has one internal FDD. I saw a manual once, you can turn the lappy off by pressing Alt-Crtl-Setup, one of the DIP switches stops it turning on, thats all I can remember.
