This computer hit the markets in 1982.

Compaq Transportable


A Compaq Transportable. A heavy suitcase style computer with a little amber screen and two 5,25 inch floppy disks. I can remember that I took a COBOL book written by Wim Ebbinkhuijsen and a copy of a user manual for Ryan McFarland COBOL to create programs on it to crunch time sheet for the accountancy firm I was working for at that time.
