Presenting the Osbourne 1 released by the Osbourne Computer Corporation in 1981. How things have changed, back than the disk drives were larger than the screen which was 5" to be exact, and couldn't show more than 52 characters per line of text. If it were any longer you' have to manually use the arrow keys to scroll until they came into view. It also featured 64k RAM and weighed in at a chunky 24.5 pounds. This laptop not only weighed you down but your pockets as well, it cost an astounding $1,800 at the time.
