A Visual Walk Through The History of Laptop Computers

The laptop, then notebook, computer has been transformed from a 20+ pound behemoth in the 1980s to svelte 3 pound sub-compacts today, according to Steve Hamm at BusinessWeek in this recent, interesting walk through the timeline.

Weive gone from this:

Osborne 1, 1981, $1795

To this, in just about 25 years.

MacBook Air, 2008, $1799

One has to wonder what the next twenty-five years will be like.
