    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. Apparently the world's first palmtop (1989) running an 8088 chip at 4mhz.

    Even though I like Atari this Portfolio was news to me. Now I have heard someone overclocked one back in the day so that it ran at 6mhz, but it drained the battery alot.
