First Laptop

Pictured here is one of the first "portable" computers. It could be considered the first laptop.
This is the Osborne 1, which came out in 1981.
The computer cost $1,800, weighed 25 pounds, and had a 5 inch screen.


  1. I happened to used one in my high school class. It was the exact same one with green text. This was in 1984, Portland Maine High School in my math class. It was my first computer learning experienced, then in 1986 I got a hand on an IBM Personal computer in Santa Ana High School, Santa Ana, California. This picture sure does bring back some memories.
