Portfolio palmtop
« on: October 06, 2004, 12:53:42 AM »

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. 8)

I have since heard that someone overclocked one back in the day so that it ran at 6mhz, but that drained the battery somewhat. :(

Haha - The only time you will ever be able to get a 50% increase in speed is when 50% is like 2 mhz :P

Exactly, you just tell people you increased processor speed 50%. Don't mention you started at 4mhz! :D

I've seen 50 percent OCs.

The famous Celeron 300As at 450?

I've heard some people can get their Duron 1600s to 2400 or 2500
