Good god, am I the ONLY one who bought an Osborne I? :)

If I remember right, I paid about $1700 for that thing and another $500 for the Okidata printer to go with it. However I do remember lugging that "suitcase" to college to program between classes and how excited I was when I was able to get double sided 5 1/4 drives in it. That and to get a pascal compiler that didn't rely on swapping floppies just to compile.

And yes it's still sitting in the garage, along with the service manual that I was able to pick up not long after I bought it.

The thing that really made me feel old is when I saw one on display in an exhibit in a museum down in Sydney .

There is no emoticon for what I'm feeling now.
