I wouldn't have the VIC20 on that list as it would have been the enrty point into the world of computing for so many. Certainly I first 'discovered' computers in my secondard school's computer lab which was full of them. The C16 would be a more worthy inclusion from the Commodore stable, or perhaps the SX-64.

Isn't that what you get if you introduce a drunk secretary to a photocopier? Oh, I see what you mean. ;-)

Early netbooks were niche products. That niche is ultra-portability at low cost. For traveling, they are fabulous. The trouble started when people bought them thinking that they were just cheaper laptops. It got worse when manufacturers tried to turn them into cheap laptops. They got bigger, heavier, and more expensive. In the end, they were bad laptops that no longer served the original niche.

My first real PC was a "Portable" with a flip open LCD that had a contrast ratio of about 1.5 to 1. My second was A DAK special 386 that had a bum printer port (skipped the odd character - probably why DAK got them :-) But I had fun with all of them and learned a lot.

Anything running OS 8 and 9. Those things always randomly crashed and that made it impossible to get anything done. Even my Windows 95 machine at home was more stable than that....

Max, nevermind the Apple Powerbook or Macbook Pro ... at 16 pounds, the Apple Mac Portable that you cite was heavier than the Beige G3 tower that I once had 2001-2005 or my brother's Quicksilver G4!

NEXT UPCOMING BROADCAST

What are the engineering and design challenges in creating successful IoT devices? These devices are usually small, resource-constrained electronics designed to sense, collect, send, and/or interpret data. Some of the devices need to be smart enough to act upon data in real time, 24/7. Are the design challenges the same as with embedded systems, but with a little developer- and IT-skills added in? What do engineers need to know? Rick Merritt talks with two experts about the tools and best options for designing IoT devices in 2016. Specifically the guests will discuss sensors, security, and lessons from IoT deployments.
