I've used most of those (not the Otrona Attache, Apple Lisa, Dynabyte, IBM 5120, or IBM Portable PC (1975)), but several years after initial release of course through the 80's. The CP/M operating system is just a blur in my mind. This 95 year old guy I work for still programs in 6502 on an Apple ///.

They look even more exotic in nowadays Razz
I've used the Apple III also sometimes in the 80's bitRAKE.

I remember using the trs-80 model I or model III taking my first programming course in high school around 1982-83 (even before that I remember using an apple II in middle school around 1980 or so). brings back memories of the LOUD clack/clack keyboards, and cooling fans, and printers.....etc. Very Happy
