Remember that Compaq is the first PC clone maker and the first
portable PC maker ever. I think that's not bad.

I doubt any of that is true. I mean, sure, they're not GRiDs, and I
don't think this one is unergonomic. The power connector bit, I'll
have to agree with. Unfortunatley, the docking station was being sold
for more than the portable. But, hey! You use one too! Hipocrite ;)
