WORLD'S FIRST LAPTOP
THE LONGEST LIST OF THE LONGEST STUFF AT THE LONGEST DOMAIN NAME AT LONG LAST

What was the world's first laptop?

The world's first laptop was released in 1981 by the Osborne Computer Corporation and was called the Osborne 1.

It weighed a lap crushing 24.5 pounds, came with a speedy 4.0 MHz CPU, a whopping 64K of RAM, an eye pleasing built-in 5" monitor and dual 5-1/4 inch, 91K drives.

All this could be had for a mere $1795.00 USD.

British industrial designer Bill Moggridge designed the GRiD Compass 1100 which was released in April 1982. The GRiD Compass 1100 was the first laptop to take the form of laptops as we know them today, with the clamshell design, but one would have set you back about $8,000.00 USD.
