In 1985, we launched the world’s first mass market laptop PC, the famous T1100. This device was recognised by the Institute of Electrical & Electronics Engineers (IEEE) as a milestone in electrical engineering, one of only 17 so recognised during the entire 1980s.
We’ve been committed to mobile computing and to innovation ever since achieving global market leadership and delivering over 30 world firsts in 35 years.
Now, as Dynabook, innovation remains a core part of our corporate culture, and we will continue to lead the way.Download IEEE list of milestones
