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, such as a heat grill and cover on the top side, it also has a cover over both drives, and a cover for the power socket and switch. It also has a green screen instead of the original's black and white.
