Kaypro was founded in 1952 as Non-Linear Systems, the first manufacturer
of digital voltmeters. In 1982, the company jumped on the personal
computer bandwagon and rose quickly to become a darling of the industry
with sales hitting $120 million.
 
The fall was quicker. Losses that peaked at $19.4 million on sales of
$21.8 million drove the company into Chapter 11 bankruptcy proceedings
in March 1990. In June 1992, the proceedings were converted to Chapter 7
liquidation to satisfy some $20 million in claims.

Hmmm...

No.. :)  My first experience was with a Kaypro machine, I don't remember
the
details of the box but I was completely fascinated by it.

That was back in the days I thought PCs wouldn't catch on and Commodore
would rule the world.

I couldn't have been more wrong ... :)
