The 2270 has a standard nasty passive matrix monochrome display. Ever try
an HP OmniBook 300? It has a passive monochrome display, but it's
reflective and works great outdoors.

How about the worst display on a portable? Had to be the Casio/Tandy/Grid
Zoomer -- high glare, non-backlit and nearly opaque because of the touch
screen. But what a fun toy.
