IBM What laptop is the most loved, and maybe the most famous laptop in the world? Which laptop went into space? Which laptop won over 300 design awards? I'm sure many of you will be thinking of something made by Apple, but the truth of the matter is that we're talking about something else: IBM's ThinkPad. You might wonder, where does that name come from?

Heh, when I read that that is what first came to my mind.

I want a GRiD 1101 so badly

Who, can resist a computer with bubble memory. They were just the hottest computer you could own in the early 1980:s. Unfortunately they had their own OS, so they could not survive the competition from MS-DOS based systems such as the Thinkpad.

Seeing that GRiD 1101 kind of makes it clear where Dell got its newfound fetish with the extending part behind the laptop's display.
