TOSHIBA’S 35-YEAR OLD LAPTOP DIVISION NOW HAS A NEW NAME.
Until recently, we were a storied part of Toshiba, responsible for over 30 world firsts, triggering the mobile computing revolution and achieving global market leadership. In 2018, retaining our people, process, vision and culture, we moved to new ownership.
To reflect this, we’ve transitioned to the Dynabook name around the world, a name that reflects our heritage and achievements. Now, backed by new investment, we will continue to serve our customers in business, government and education by developing mobile computers that set the standard for innovation, quality and reliability.
INTRODUCING THE T1100.
THE WORLD’S FIRST LAPTOP COMPUTER.
Weighing 4.1 kg and featuring a 640 x 200 pixel display, 256kb of RAM and an internal 3.5” floppy disk drive, the T1100 was the first portable PC to run IBM-compatible software. This made mobile computing accessible to everyday business users for the first time. The IEEE recognises the T1100 as a milestone in electrical engineering and credits it with helping to trigger the mobile computing revolution.
