Non Linear Systems began producing portable computers in 1983 starting with the Kaypro II. The Kaypro 10 was an addition to the Kaypro line that incorporated a built-in 10 megabyte hard drive for which the model was named.
Since the machine had the hard drive it was equipped with only one floppy.
The Kaypro 10 in my collection is a very clean example with all of its documentation and original software. It came in its original box, although that's taken a bit of a beating with age.
The Kaypro systems were bulky, even for luggables, but they were sturdy!
This Kaypro came with a nifty overlay that summarized the various WordStar commands. Useful for navigating that popular yet confusing package.
