Macintosh Portable (1989) -- Apple's first battery-powered portable Macintosh personal computer was released in September 1989 with a price tag of more than $7,000. It was met with great excitement upon release, but proved to ultimately be too expensive and heavy to be a true success and was discontinued after about a month on the market. While it didn't last, its clamshell design has featured prominently in every Apple laptop since.
