The NCR Safari 3180 was released in mid-late 1993 and was a intel 80486 based laptop computer manufactured for National Cash Register by Nippon Electric Company NEC. It may also have been marketed as the AT&T Safari 3180 as AT&T Bought out NCR in 1991. NEC made the higher end Safari product lines for NCR/AT&T, while Samsung handled the lower end.
