  Do you mean that huge portable with the black handle that turns into
something similar to tar?

   If so, I have one and I've been offered another. My Visual portable has
a tip up screen about half the size of the machine but only has a tiny LCD
screen in it. The plug for the screen on mine is bad but it works with a
regular monitor. The other machine & screen works fine. I think I have a
copy of the original disk, but I know I don't have any docs.
