It had to be plugged into a wall outlet to power up and use.  However, it was still classified as a portable computer because it could be hand-carried.  The Osborne 1 shipped with a large bundle of software worth almost as much as the computer.  That software included some of the most powerful and pioneering programs of the day such as D-Base2 for data sorting; SuperCal, an early spreadsheet, and WordStar, a leading word processor application that had a dominant market share that lasted until the mid-1980s.   I was a young VP at a small welding equipment manufacturing company, which while a market leader in its small niche, could never seem to break out of a slow growth cycle.  My new “computer aided” ability to process large amounts of data, prepare “what if” scenarios, and then sum it all up quickly in a word-processed proposal, was enormously helpful.  It enabled me to make a positive contribution to the company that impressed my superiors, peers, and subordinates.  The Osborne 1 enabled us to form teams that used its data enhancing speed benefits to efficiently develop new products.   By the end of
