dc.description.abstractThe Osborne Computer Corporation was founded in 1980 with an emphasis placed on portable computers. The Osborne 1 debuted a year later and became the first commercially successful portable microcomputer, featuring a 5-inch (127 mm) 52-column display, two floppy-disk drives, a Z80 microprocessor, and 64KB of RAM. The Osborne 1 ran the then-popular CP/M 2.2 operating system. The computer was shipped with a large bundle of software that was almost equivalent in value to the machine itself, a practice adopted by other CP/M computer vendors. In 2011 dollars, $1,795 = $4,300.
