Osborne 01

The Osborne 01 followed on from the Osborne 1 in 1982. The Osborne 1 was the first widely accepted portable computer that included a monitor, disk drives and all components.
The Osborne 01 was a minor update to the original Osborne. It had a more rugged case (white instead of beige) and a few minor styling tweaks.
