There is no definite answer as to when or where the first laptop was developed. However, there is strong evidence to suggest that the first computer that was a model for the laptop was the Grid Compass, developed in 1979 in the UK by William Moggridge for Grid Systems Corporation. This computer had a folding electroluminescent graphics display screen. It was first used by NASA in the space shuttle progra. Other computer historians are of the opinion that the first true laptop was the Gavilon, developed by Manuel (Manny) Fernandez in 1983, in the United States. This laptop used the "clamshell" design for the screen.

The laptop was designed to make a personal computer easily portable. The first portable computer was the GriD Compass (weighing about 5 kilograms). It was invented by Bill Moggridge in 1979 and cost several thousand dollars when it was first sold in 1982. It was widely used by the military and aboard the Space Shuttle. The first true laptop was invented by Adam Osborne in 1981. It was called 'Osborne 1' and cost $1,795. It came bundled with $1,500 worth of programmes and had a tiny monitor screen built into it. This first portable computer was a success, with sales reaching 10,000 units a month. IBM launched the IBM 5155 Portable Personal Computer in 1984. In 1988, Compaq Computer launched the first laptop PC with VGA graphics, the Compaq SLT/286. In 1989, NEC released UltraLite, which was the first lightweight 'laptop' computer. Weighing under 5 lbs, it was the precursor of today's models.

Go to http://www.en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Alan_Kay for more information about him. The modern day laptop was created by William Moggridge for Grid Systems Corporation in 1979. The Clamshell Design patent was acquired by Tandy Corporation in 1988 when they acquired Grid Systems. They subsequently monetized the patent by aggresively pursuing all companies who were using this design.
