I tell you, if HP had branched out and produced these beauties in five colours… that would have been something. Nonetheless, this little guy was still kind of special. This fella came out in January of 1980 as Hewlitt-Packard’s first personal computer designed for technical professionals and small-computer users. It’s name is HP-85, the Adam of the Hp Series 80. It came equipped with no less than 16kb of RAM, 32kb of ROM, a 5” CRT that could display 16 lines of text (32 characters per) or 256 by192 pixel graphics, a tape drive AND a printer. I dare you to find any modern computer that has a built in printer. I double dog DARE you.
