The GRiD Compass 1100 was first introduced in 1982, and is the world’s first clamshell laptop computer. It features an Intel 8086 processor, CGA display, 1200 bit/s modem, 340-kilobyte magnetic bubble memory, and GRiD OS. Unfortunately, early adopters had to shell out $8,000 – $10,000 for this machine, including NASA, who used this machine on the space shuttle. Click here for more pictures.
