   Hmm. The Visual BASIC 100. MS-DOS, two 5 1/4" flopppy drives and wide but short folding LCD screen. It looks about like a HP Portable but is much bigger. The most memorable thing about them to me was the pull-out handle. It was coated with a rubbery substance that got very gooy and sticky with age. You couldn't touch it without the stuff sticking to you and it was next to impossible to wash off.
