Default 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 (1989), quite a neat little device for its day. Apparently running an 8088 chip at 4mhz.

My first PC was an Atari 400 (with 48k) but I must have been out of it by the late 80s because I didn't know about the Portfolio. All this time I thought he was holding an Atari Lynx. Now I have heard that someone OC'd a Portfolio so that it ran at 6mhz, but this drained the battery somewhat.
