A Little History... The first compact portable computers were called NOTEBOOK computers. But to fit in more battery power, CD drives, full size keys and larger screens, the next generation was called LAPTOP computers. Now laptop computers have grown to such absurd dimensions people are asking, do they really have to be this large...? No, they don't. My first notebook computer, and AST ('95) was the perfect size, but since about '97, it became almost impossible to find that size - anywhere. Now, thankfully, the pendulum has swung back; small is once again 'cool', trendy, cute... and every one wants one, including me. They are what portable computers once were - the industry is finally getting back to basics.
