  1. Looks like it was a tablet PC.

    • With the added advantage of a dedicated font. Removed the need to choose between hundreds of font, most of which had the legibility of a doctor’s signature.

  2. Even sleeker than the Apple 1… IBM really did set the bar in design.

  3. You do realize that this could be the savior of the corflu industry.

  4. Sometimes, I enjoy taking my Remington portable down to the coffee shop and out-hipstering everyone in the room.
