Portable Paper

The Portable Paper was published by Personalized Software of Fairfield, Iowa. The publication was a newsletter for users of the HP Portable and the Portable Plus. The newsletter was launched in January of 1986, only shortly before HP decided to discontinue development of the Portable family. Despite the limited audience and and obsolete product line, The Portable Paper ran for six years. This outstanding publication provides a wealth of information on user tips, software and add on products for the Portable and Portable Plus.

From 1988 through 1991, The Portable Paper issued a subscriber's disc to its readers. The discs contained programs for use with the Portable and Portable Plus (and later for the Vectra Portable CS and LS/12 computers). That software can be found here.

Personalized Software changed its name to Thaddeus Computing in 1991 and launched The HP Palmtop Paper for the new HP 95LX. The HP Palmtop Paper ran in print form (editions below) into the year 2000. HTML versions of the content from the 1991-2000 issue can be found at Thaddeus Computing's HP 200LX web site palmtoppaper.com, which remains active and contains additional resources for HP Palmtop users as well as information about buying, selling and repairing HP Palmtops.

The museum's collection was donated by Hal Goldstein, the editor of The Portable Paper and The HP Palmtop Paper. Scanning and contact with the museum was provided by Dave Frederickson.
