City Views on Tour Special: Deutsches Technikmuseum 143

This Osborne-1 from 1981 in Berlin’s Museum of Technology was one of the first portable personal computers, a Z80 machine with 64kb RAM running CP/M 2.2 on two 5.25″ floppy drives. The screen was only 5 inches big and was able to display 52×24 characters. Osborne went bankrupt in 1983, mainly because competitor Kaypro had better ‘luggables’ to offer, but those are sadly not in the museum to see. Our family still owns a fully working Kaypro 2x though!
