A CDE Definition
Data General One
The first DOS-based laptop. Introduced by Data General in 1984, it was fully IBM compatible and considerably lighter than the 30-pound Compaqs of the time. However, it never caught on, because, although the monochrome LCD panel was very large, it was almost impossible to see unless lighting conditions and your angle to the screen were perfect. Even then, it was difficult.
