We demand a wide variety of 7 inch laptops...

If they could cram a 1980s motherboard with built-in modem and various peripheral ports into that thing, the innards of a smart phone would definitely fit.

That keyboard is gorgeous.

Tech should be reasonably priced...

It should have never been some overinflated shitfest like the iPhone, or any Apple product for that matter.
Here ya go...

OMG it's so cute.
It's gorgeeeeouuuuuussssss.
If that's not the fucking cutest thing in the world I don't know what is.

MAYBE kitties are cuter (they are).

MAYBE there are some babies that are cuter (probably not).

Okay okay let's put it this way...

It's the cutest inanimate thing in the world.

Hold my beer.

Oh hell yes...

Thank God there are people out there working hard to bring back all the best things.
Let's take a trip down Memory Lane! Cool

First we travel back to 1989...

3:00 The first color laptop screens demonstrated

12:38 The first Macintosh laptop unveiled

Throughout the episode, computer makers show off their latest laptops and portables. Most of them are big and clunky...

18:20 ... then NEC drops this tantalizing bombshell, which is the kind of computer we're looking for -- in 1989! Watch the old dude to his right.
He had just finished demonstrating his company's yawn-inspiring clunker. He knows he's been upstaged by this little beauty.

21:30 The first laptop with a cellular modem

Let's skip ahead two years to 1991...

0:10 The Psion 3 pocket computer

1:35 Sony Discman CD-ROM-based e-book reader

3:14 An early portable GPS navigation system

5:00 Hardware manufacturers tried to push interactive screens in portable devices for decades before they finally caught on with
modern smartphones and tablets. In the 90s, most required some kind of stylus.

11:00 Our favorite little computers were called "palmtops" when they first appeared. They were real DOS and Windows computers that evolved
from personal organizers and PDAs. Here's the dainty pocket-sized Hewlett Packard 95LX (the equivalent of an IBM XT desktop) with a big honkin'
Motorola wireless network add-on.

12:57 NEC shows off a laptop, "brick" cellular phone, and network adapter in a briefcase. Then IBM trots out a sleek laptop with
built-in cellular modem and telephone handset connector.

19:18 The newest Macintosh PowerBook laptops

22:45 One of the first consumer laptops with color screen
