The Apple IIc, the fourth model in the Apple II series of personal computers, is Apple Computer’s first endeavour to produce a portable computer. The result was a 7.5 lb (3.4 kg) notebook-sized version of the Apple II that could be transported from place to place. | eBay!

My first Apple exposure ... the Apple IIc. My school had exactly one of these, and we would fight over it in computer science to see who could work on it. Finally, my dad went out and bought one for home. I think we had that computer until I went off to college ... where I promptly got a Mac.
