LNW company name came from its three founders' names: Gene Lu, Michael G. Norton (President) and Ken Woog. In 1980, the company started manufacturing expansion and interface cards for the Tandy TRS-80 Model 1 and then sold the first TRS-80 compatible single-board kit.

The LNW-80 was an early TRS-80 clone system, sold as a kit or assembled, and fully hardware and software compatible. It was a powerful machine offering much more advanced features than the original Model 1, including most features found on the TRS-80 expansion interface:

- Two selectable speeds, 1.77 Mhz (Tandy original) and 4 Mhz.
- 8 colours, 480 x 192 high resolution graphics
- RGB and monochrome monitor outputs
- Expanded keyboard with numeric keypad
- Versatile floppy disk controler for single/double sided 5.25" or 8" disks, single or double density format
- Serial RS-232C and Parallel interfaces.

Later, LNW sold two other computers, the LN80 II and the LN80 TEAM, a MS-DOS based system (no info at the moment).

In 1984 the company went bankrupt mainly because of its warehouse burglary, as all of its computers stock disapeared!
