PowerBook Duo 210

The first of a new breed, the idea behind the Duo 210 was to have a fully functional desktop computer (by way of the DuoDock) that also served as an excellent portable machine. The 210 ran on a 25 Mhz 68030 processor, had a 4-bit passive screen, 4-32 MB of memory, and an internal hard drive. Its most innovative feature was the 152 pin PDS that allowed it to dock with a docking station that might contain more RAM, a larger hard drive, or more VRAM for a color monitor. The 210 cost $2,250, and was discontinued in October 1993.
