    Default Portfolio palmtop

    I was watching Terminator 2 the other day and noticed the character John Connor using a small piece of Atari hardware to work out the pin no. for a stolen credit card and steal cash.
    It looked interesting so I went to the Atari museum website and found out it was their palmtop computer the Portfolio, quite a neat little device for its day.

    MS DOS 2.2 Compatibility... WOOHOO!!

    I wonder what the price was. Seems they could have made a killing on it due to size alone if it was priced right. Nice find. =)

    I suppose I should have known about this given my first PC was an Atari 400, but I didn't look into it until recently. Apparently it was the world's first palmtop (1989).
