History: 20 years of Apple laptops

Posted on Thursday, September 24 2009 @ 04:00:16 CEST by


ARS Technica reports Apple released its first laptop 20 years ago, and takes a look at the various notebooks the company has released during the last two decades. You can check it out over here.
Sunday marked the 20th anniversary of the first portable Macintosh computer, the aptly-named Macintosh Portable. While it was indeed portable, it was anything but svelte. Apple's first non-desktop Mac weighed in at nearly 16lb and was a beast at 4" thick, 15.25" wide and 14.8" deep. While the 9.8" 1-bit, 640x480 display is quaint by today's standards, it was active-matrix, an expensive rarity in the days of passive matrix portable computers. Unfortunately, it wasn't backlit. The Portable sold for a whopping $6,500 when it was launched in September 1989, and it's hardly surprising that it was never a top-seller..
