A Morrow Pivot. Portable, battery-operated MS-DOS machine; I'm not
sure how IBM-compatible it is. Made by Vadem in Milpitas, OEMd by
Morrow as the Pivot, Zenith as something (think they sold a bunch to
the IRS), Osborne as the Osborne 3.

Keep your eyes open, there are others out there. I've seen one at
Halted in Santa Clara but as usual for Halted they were asking a
bogus price for it, something like $100.
