Saw one...what is that? TI printing terminal Silent 700.

It's a portable data terminal, with the thermal printer replacing a display
screen. They had built-in modems (at least my model 707 does) and could use
rechargeable battery packs or AC power. Truly the "laptop computers" of
their day. They were commonly used by salesmen, engineers, etc; anyone who
might have to dial in to a mainframe while on the road. Some selected specs:

Printing rate: 45 cps, bidirectional
Modem transmission speed: 300 bps
Weight: 2.04 kg (includes one roll of thermal paper)
Power consumption: 35 W maximum at 90 Vac
Operating environment: Temperature: 10 deg C to 40 deg C
        Maximum altitude (!) 3000 m

Feel free to email me if you want more info.
