From The Free On-line Dictionary of Computing (30 December 2018) :

  portable computer
  laptop computer
      (Commonly, "laptop") A portable personal computer
     you can carry with one hand.  Some laptops run so hot that it
     would be quite uncomforable to actually use them on your lap
     for long.  The term "notebook" is often used to describe
     these, though it also implies a low weight (less than 2kg).  A
     "{luggable" is one you could carry in one hand but is so
     heavy you wouldn't want to.  One that can by easily operated
     while held in one hand is a "{palmtop".
     The computer considered by most historians to be the first
     true portable computer was the Osborne 1 but see the link
     below for other contenders.
