Epson HC-20 (HX-21-UA)
The Epson HX-20 (also known as the HC-20) is generally regarded as the first laptop computer, announced in November 1981, although first sold widely in 1983. Hailed by BusinessWeek magazine as the "fourth revolution in personal computing", it is generally considered both the first notebook and handheld computer and it is for this reason that it is highly prized among collectors.
Our HC-20 is clarly marked on the back as model number HX-21-UA with a date of 19th October 1986. It has a serial number of 002 on a label marked "Epson Sample"
