Grid Compass (First closest form of computer)
In 1979 Bill Moggridge designed the Grid Compass in 1979, the first and closest example of Computer. Even NASA used Grid Compass in its space shuttle program. It featured 340k Byte of bubble memory with a die-cast magnesium case and folding electroluminescent graphics display screen. These were only the closest form of laptops but not exactly what we see today
"If the Grid Compass was released today, I doubt anyone would even call it a portable computer."
After these initial developments and technologies were successfully implemented there was no way back for the scientist, and they continued to produce more genius equipment's with ultra-features, which thrills the human brain till today.
Most of the professional departments are now referring towards laptops over PC's because of easy accommodation and access. In the past few years, many companies have taken over the market with their products offering excellent services with the high-quality results as compared to old versions.
Now the 8th generation has been introduced into the market, which means higher speed and accuracy.
