The original idea of a portable computer is credited to Alan Kay of the Xerox Palo Alto Research Center who suggested the 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 using wireless network capabilities for connectivity.
