Macintosh Portable

The first portable version of the Mac. Introduced in 1989, it was essentially a fast Macintosh SE with a floppy disk and optional 40MB hard disk. The Portable had a 16 MHz Motorola 68000 CPU, 1MB of RAM and a monochrome LCD screen. Not terribly popular, the machine was heavy and cost USD $6,500. See MacBook, PowerBook, iBook and Macintosh.


The Macintosh Portable
Although more compact than a Macintosh SE, due to its lead acid battery, the 16-pound Portable weighed only about a pound less. (Image courtesy of NeonCluster.com.)
