Snow White Awakens
Lacking a built-in display and a battery, the IIc doesn't qualify as a true portable by today's standards, but it is compact enough to set up and tear down easily.

The IIc also introduced mouse input to the Apple II series, and heralded the coming of a new design language called "Snow White" for Apple's products. It's a marvelous and popular little machine: Apple II creator Steve Wozniak recently told me that the IIc is still his favorite computer of all time.
