Out of a 128? Yes, but only in VDC 80-column mode. The 9-pin DSUB in the back
exports a signal that works just fine with most CGA and many EGA monitors,
and if you are ridiculously lucky enough to have a multisync that can drop
to a frequency that low, a select few VGA/SVGA monitors.

Otherwise (for 40-column 128 mode and the 64), find something like AIM Labs'
JAM!! box, which takes S-video, composite and just about everything else, and
spits out VGA. Never used it myself, however.
