        If I remember correctly, we had a Compaq 'lunchbox' portable machine
that had a gas-plasma display on it. It was a '386 machine and the display
pivoted outward and could be adjusted for the best viewing angle. I've seen
a couple other systems with these displays as well, but don't recall which
ones or if I had any problems with them. It seems to me that the gas-plasma
was fairly easy on the eyes.
