Default Compudyne Laptop-found in garbage

So they bring home an ancient relic they found.ok, lets see what we have... power prongs broke off in the electrical port,"six holes with broken copper that's flush...it was tough getting those out!" The battery is a club for defence against attack apparently, "big ol' ten pounder, the old cadium's" and to use an adapter for current, well like Quasimodo screaming how the bells hurt I say "the lists! the lists!" There endless. Thought it was strange could not access any technicial details but nearly 300-400 sites for accessories.Found that it was an Indian company that went before Congress for stock issues and that the only reference for it is that it is used by Federal Response Teams in an advertisment that sends you to a private security firm's website?! I'ts a white laptop,Compudyne model number BC380A and yes, I,ve just finished watching the 'X File's' but can any one direct me to a source to see what this jeanie really is?
