I always thought the Coleco Adam looked really impressive in it's day. (although, that's about all it was good for - to look at)

Ahhh yes, the Tandy 102. I liked that one, too. I've used a couple of them, and actually found one of the later models (the Tandy 200, with a more laptop-like folding screen) in a local pawn shop a few years ago for $30. I later sold it for $100, but I wish I still had it.
I had one of these for awhile, and I did some pretty sophisticated things with it. I seem to recall that most everything was done by the RS-232c port... but I could connect and transfer files between my PCs and it by null modem... it also had a built in dialer... maybe even a modem. My memory is hazy - but I'm pretty sure you could call a BBS from it. It had a bunch of little programs, and I think you could download other programs and install them, too.
It was my first notebook. And, for quite awhile, really one of the *best* (notebooks didn't get very functional and reliable until the post-486 era, IMO. I always found myself going, "someday these will be able to do the things my desktop can".)
I liked the design of this one, actually. There was something elegent about it's physical, notebook/biner size and shape.

If we're ignoring functionality and just going on looks, I like the sci-fi gigantor look of something like this. I don't know what kind of machine it is but it sure is cool looking.

I'm surprised nobody mentioned the Amiga 1000 yet.
