When Was the First Laptop Invented?

The first laptop computer, as most humans know them, was invented in 1981. It was created by a former book publisher named Adam Osborne and was called the Osborne 1.

The Osborne 1 had a style and structure that was a precursor to the notebooks and laptops society currently uses. The portable computer weighed 24 pounds and cost $1,795. It had a 5-inch screen, two 5.25-inch floppy drives, a modem port, a bundle of software and a battery pack. Adam Osborne founded Osborne Computers in 1981 to sell the Osborne 1, but the computer, as well as the company, was short-lived.
