My First Computer: the IBM 5100

A collection of first computer stories relayed by Dan Gillmor.

My first computer was an IBM 5100. Flip the switch up, you're running BASIC. Flip the switch down, you're running APL.

I'd hardly call it a portable computer though. The box was not even as mobile as those "luggable" computers like the Kay Pro from a few years later.
