Osborne crawled out of bankruptcy, beaten and bloodied, to try one more time to sell a luggable computer. The Osborne Vixen, released in 1984, was yet another CP/M machine with a 4MHz Z80 CPU, and 64KB of RAM. They FINALLY switched to double-sided and double-density 5.25” floppy drives. The 7-inch amberscale monitor showed a full 80x24 character display. And they made it lighter, weighing only 18lbs. It retailed for a paltry $1,298, and you could add a 10MB HDD for $1,498.
Once again, the biggest value of the system was the bundled software. WordStar, SuperCalc, a version of Microsoft BASIC, a graphics program, a floppy converter program with support for “over 200 other computers”, and a game called “Desolation”. However, it was at this time that CP/M was effectively killed off by the competition. People weren’t using 8-bit microcomputers for business anymore, they’ve all moved on to other systems from other companies like IBM.
Osborne struggled to make a new system, an IBM PC compatible version of their Osborne, but they ran out of money while trying to construct prototypes. They went defunct, and sold off everything to a PC clone maker in Finland called Mikrolog Ltd. They now use the Osborne branding to sell desktop computers.
