Owner: R. Kuhlenschmidt (first version, pictured)
Perhaps the first portable (?) computer. Check out the pair of 5 1/4" drives flanking a teeny, tiny screen. (3.55" horizontal by 2.63" vertical, to be exact) It was the owner's first computer. He adds:
So next time you're cursing the weight or small screen of your laptop, remember how big these things used to be! (The Osborne 1 even had a battery pack available, for true portability!?!)
Other quasi-portable computers include the Kaypro II, the IBM 5155 Personal Portable Computer, and the Commodore Executive 64 (SX-64).
