This is the first portable computer I ever owned... The term "portable" is used loosely here -- It weighed over 30lbs, so it was more of a "luggable" computer. Nonetheless, this system made on-the-go computing a reality for many folks back in 1981. The 3" CRT, keyboard, dual floppy disk drives, modem and disk holder were all neatly held in a hardshell that folded up into a handy suitcase-shaped package. Can you imagine that this machine originally cost nearly $2000 20+ years back?

It ran on the CP/M Operating system! (pre-windows) No mouse, no "copy" command, you would "pip" your file!
