The laptop computer was created by Adam Osbourne in 1981, Osbourne ran a company called Osbourne Computers, which sold books to larger publishers. The computer was given the surprising name of Osbourne 1. It had a very tiny screen. It cost about $1800 at the time.

In 1989, NEC produced the first 'laptop' computer that actually could be placed on your lap, it weighed less than 5lbs. The first consumer laptop came in three years earlier in 1986 but it wasn't the type of thing you could actually sit on your lap very easily.

Recently in 2005 a wind up version of the laptop computer was produced for use in the third world. It doesn't have a fast processor, it doesn't have huge amounts of memory but does only cost $100 and runs like clockwork, well.. on clockwork.

These days laptops are cheap (if you don't want much), quick, with big memories and very fast processors and very light in weight.

The Osborne 1 by Adam Osborne was the first commercially available laptop. This laptop was manufactured by, you guessed it, Osborne computers. It had a tiny screen and carried a price tag of approximately a thousand eight hundred dollars. But this was not the first laptop. No, that honour goes to the Xerox NoteTaker. This was developed by Xerox PARC in 1976; concepts of this had been in existence since 1970 however. Finally only ten prototypes of this model were produced. The first successful model of the laptop was Compaq Portable which was introduced in 1983 by Compaq. What is believed to be the first laptop in the truest sense of the word is the GRiD Compass 1101 introduced in 1982. It was used by the military and NASA, primarily due to its high cost it was a great commercial success. It was credited to Bill Moggridge.
