The first IBM PC compatible portable[edit]

It was the first portable PC, not the first PC so I removed that claim Bhny (talk) 19:18, 12 August 2009 (UTC)

I am pretty sure the Compaq Portable wasn't the first IBM PC compatible portable, the Hyperion was released 3 months before that.

This information is available on

It was most definitely NOT the first portable pc or even the 1st portable IBM compatible portable pc. The Hyperion was released prior to the Compaq Portable and was also IBM compatible. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 11:06, 31 May 2013 (UTC)

I'm wondering if the MPC (Multi Personal Computer) from Columbia Data Products was actually the first IBM PC compatible computer ever made (this one was not portable, but it's still a PC compatible that predates the Compaq Portable). Many sources seem to disagree with eachother on this one. Ae-a 11:21, 18 October 2005 (UTC)

What about CPU? It was Intel 8088? 13:03, 30 October 2006 (UTC)

I do NOT believe the Compaq Portable was the first IBM compatible PC. And Compaq may have been short for Compatible and Quality K9ine (talk) 01:13, 25 November 2007 (UTC)
