   Nope, no DD or ScreenPac, it's just a plain '1.

   I remember selling Kaypro systems at an after-school job in the  
mid-1980s.  We pushed them pretty hard on the "much bigger display  
than an Osborne 1" selling point.  I still like the overall design of  
the Osborne, though, especially the little cubby holes for floppies.   
That's very handy.
