The Bondwell-2 was an early laptop personal computer running the CP/M operating system. Introduced by Bondwell in 1985, it came with a Zilog Z80 CPU clocked at 4 MHz, 64 kB RAM and 4 kB ROM. It had a 3.5" floppy disk drive, highly unusual for a CP/M system, as this OS was largely outmoded by the time 3.5" drives were introduced. The Model 2's main attraction was its price, at 995 USD it also included MicroPro's complete line of CP/M software, including WordStar. Also unusually for a CP/M system, the Bondwell-2 was capable of displaying bitmapped graphics. The flip-up LCD display's resolution was 640x200 pixels, or 80x25 text characters. A 300 baud modem was available as an option.
