Listing Detail Tabs

Here are three Osborne-1 luggable computers.

- #1 works perfectly, with a good picture on the tiny screen. It loaded all the disks I tried, and the second drive worked OK too. The only fault I could pick was that the monitor controls were a bit scratchy, though they weren't too bad really. Has a number of stickers, otherwise tidy.
- #2 seems in reasonable order, but wouldn't load software, it just seemed to seek track zero. No idea why, dirty heads maybe? Has a few stickers, and is missing the little panel off the back that covers the power socket.
- #3 is physically in very good order, with no stickers or nasty marks. However, doesn't work. This worked fine last time I powered it up, I'm sure; probably needs IC reseating. It only shows random characters on the screen.

Accessories:
- Original Osborne carry bag, in excellent condition.
- Disks as shown in the two photos (about 20 in all), some originals even with Osborne covers!
- External monitor adaptor converter
- Original (well-worn and very thick) user's manual.

I hope these go to a good home - they'd make for some very interesting classic computing!
