"The first of Apple's truly portable Mac's, the PowerBook 100 had basically the same processor as the old Mac Portable. The 100 was well received despite its slow processor, passive-matrix screen, and lack of internal floppy drive. It originally sold for $2,500 The PowerBook 100 was released alongside the 140 and the 170. While these two models were based on the same motherboard, the 100 had a simpler motherboard design, and was designed and manufactured by Sony for Apple."
