Of course, while I heartily agree with mcc
's writeup, let us not forget that the iMac
or even the Compact Mac
was not the first computer to come with a handle! For nostalgia
's sake, how many machines can you name that predate
the compact Mac and had handles as an integral part
of the case design? More node-fu
for those machines that were all-in-one
s, or close to it. I think we should disqualify notebook computer
s, although it still strikes me as odd that things so expensive and mobile don't, often, have handles! Go Apple.
In any case, here's a few off the top of my head:
- The Kaypro
- The Apple IIc
- The PC/XT Portable and derivatives(heehee...I have one of these..."portable" my wide black beh...er, nevermind).
- The Osborne, for the world's first mass-market 'portable'
