Both the GT40 and HP9100 were vector displays, too :-). (Although
to get "vector graphics" on the 9100 you need the optional X-Y pen

The HP9100 is a very nice "personal compute machine", and the example
I inherited was once used to compute the original space probe "slingshot"
trajectories by Van Allen at the University of Iowa.
