Kaypro 2000- Their 1st Laptop! and..last!

Kaypro 2000 introduced in 1985. This was Kaypro's first and last laptop. The black brushed-aluminum case is very unique and the look is somewhat eerie. It has been called the "Darth Vader" of laptops. Has a Intel 8088 cpu and 256K of RAM. IBM PC compatible and comes with a very complete software bundle. This computer is very rare and is in fair condition. Kaypro is not. They filed Chapter 11 bankruptcy in 1990. In 1983 Kaypro was listed as the 5th largest computer manufacturer, Too bad as Andy and David Kay were good people and risked their total corporate business on Kaypro- and lost!
