The Osborne 1: A pioneer in more ways than one

Quote:
The Osborne 1 cost $1,795. It was a lot of money in 1981, but along with a very chunky computer - all 14-odd pounds of it - you also got a plethora of floppy disks packed with software. The base system ran the CP/M operating system along with a CBASIC compiler and Microsoft BASIC, and you got a good database system, Ashton Tate's dBase II, a complete set of accounting software from PeachTree plus Sorcim's SuperCalc spreadsheet and the Wordstar word processor. Osborne even threw in a couple of games and of course a user manual, all 777 pages of it.

At the time, it was seen as a stroke of genius.
