At the age of 14 I was writing about video games for a local paper and was sent a Kaypro 16 to review. I was so amazed by this machine and connected to the internet for the first time on this machine. CompuServe charged $6 an hour and my parents killed me for the CompuServe bill they had to pay. It was a gateway to a great love and career in technology.

The Kaypro 16 was our first family computer and I logged so many hours on it that it gave me a true love for computing. Between programming and gaming I put this machine through hell and the nice thing is that I still have it after all these years. It still works too.

I called the Kaypro 16 that I had ''My kickstart computer''. It had a 10MB (RLL) harddrive that would stick when you turned the computer off. You had to give the case a slap to get it to start spinning again.

Thank you for the “walk down Memory Lane.” I enjoyed your page on the Kaypro 16, my first computer (“portable” or otherwise). I bought it for $800 from the Home Shopping Network in 1989. It worked like a champ for five years. The only problem was that the metal case made static electricity a real problem and the system would lock up on me.
