The Kaypro 2000 was pretty bad. It was squished (IIRC, about a third the
hieght it should have been), and you had to be sitting in just the right
spot to see it. I played Games and messed with CAD on it. I remember
playing the first Battletech game ("the Cresent Hawks Inception", a sort of
RPG) on it, I had to play on a friends systems for an hour or so at one
point becuase I literally couldn't see one of the destinations when playing
on the Kaypro!
