Oh, yes ... the money laptops used to cost was frightening.

One of my clients used to bundle up portable workstations for salespeople; insurance, real estate and the like. They'd put a laptop + Diconix printer into a nice attache case. At one point, I had a good dozen of these rigs in the studio for photography, all laid out on the counter. I forget what brands they were, though I remember one of them being a Grid ... that WAY expensive ExecuToy of the time.

Over the weekend, a thief broke into the place and stole every camera and lens I owned, but completely ignored the computers. A Mac dude, I suppose. These were all DOS computers.
