    Cool... but did you ever lug a Kaypro or Osborne around? ;)
    I had a couple of professors in grad school who had each of those luggables when they were quite the status symbol. :#

    The coolest single 'pute I ever used was a Tektronix 4051.
    It had this really hip on-board graphics using a storage display.
    It also had a built in firmware BASIC with a dynamic range of 10^-307 to 10^+307 (!?!)

    We actually ported some nonlinear regression analysis s/w (David Rodbard's LIGAND program) over to it from a DEC VAX platform because our datasets were so big we were overflowing the DEC BASIC interpreter with some of the matrix operations. B)

    That 4051 was built like a freaking tank, too.

    A DEC VAX.
    Boy do I remember them. I worked for them for 3 years.
    They paid to relocate me to Dallas back in 1992.

    Well -- I guess you could say that New Hampshire's "Old Man of the Mountain" was anchored to the mountain... it was part of the mountain. But that didn't end well. :(

    pljvkgi4yaum.jpg

    I had one of those Compaq "laptops", that exact model. 20 MB hardrive, with two "floppy" drives 3.5" and 4" or 5" floppies???

    I also had an HP 7 pen plotter to create plots or drawings (simple)

    I never saw those big machines on my engineering campus. We did have those old Wang "computers", used cards. Of course we had the big mainframes to read card decks. I can still hear the sound of those IBM punch card machines.
