No, the 2000 was an MS-DOS laptop circa 1985 (way back when "2000" meant
"the future"). It had a cool looking aluminum case (sort of the Chevy Vega
of portables).

The Osborne's 5" display was *much* more readable than the early large
LCD's. But if you want a cool luggable, go back 10 years before the
Osborne: the 1972 HP 9830 with dot-matrix LED display.

BTW, Derek, did you ever get your GRiDPad to work?
