  1. Way overpriced! About that same time I had an Osborne portable (CPM) with TWO 6kK drives for about $2k.(and it came bundled with Wordstar, Supercalc, and a database package.) And not too long after that I got a Compaq portable (DOS), again with TWO floppys, for about $2k. Both had the little 4″monitor, but I thought I had died and gone to heaven.
