I'd strongly recommend to NEVER ask "FIRST?"!
The Commodore SX64 was one of the first TO BE MASS PRODUCED.

But there were MANY before that.
The Elcompco (Model V?) was built into a Halliburton attache case (like
the drug dealers use), and had provision for connecting the viewfinder
from a TV camera for use as a portable display.
