The Real Thing
The IBM 5100 Portable Computer was a portable computer introduced in September 1975, six years before the IBM PC. It was the evolution of a prototype called the SCAMP (Special Computer APL Machine Portable) that was developed at the IBM Palo Alto Scientific Center in 1973. In January 1978 IBM announced the IBM 5110, its larger cousin, and in February 1980 IBM announced the IBM 5120. The 5100 was withdrawn in March 1982. When the IBM PC was introduced in 1981, it was originally designated as the IBM 5150, putting it in the "5100" series, though its architecture was not directly descended from the IBM 5100. - Wikipedia

O IBM 5100 Portable Computer foi um computador pessoal apresentado ao mercado em setembro de 1975, seis anos antes do IBM PC. Embora o IBM 5100 pareça grande para os padrões de hoje, em 1975 era uma incrível realização técnica colocar um computador completo, com uma grande quantidade de memória ROM e RAM, monitor CRT e uma unidade de fita numa embalagem tão pequena. - Wikipedia

  1. I like the color of the box. It's simple, yet cute though. It cost about $20,000 back then. I wonder how much it costs today, as a collector's item.
