Apple PowerBook 100


The PowerBook 100 was a portable Apple computer. It was first released in 1991. It was perhaps the oddest PowerBook, being primarily based on Apple's previous 'laptop', the Macintosh Portable.It was designed by Sony by miniaturizing the part to fit. It lacked an internal floppy drive, and used an almost identical version of the Portable's MC68000 CPU. It ran at the same speed as Portable. It was well received. Codenames for this model are: Asashi, Derringer, and Rosebud.
