Abstract

The original idea of a portable computer has been credited to Alan Kay of the Xerox Palo Alto Research Center, who suggested this idea in the 1970s (Kay, 1972a, 1972b; Kay & Goldberg, 1977). He envisioned a notebook-sized, portable computer named the Dynabook that could be used for all of the user’s information needs and used wireless network capabilities for connectivity.
