    Vintage GRiD Compass 1101 Laptop Computer on eBay:


    "Own a piece of computing history! The GRiD Compass was the first ever
    clamshell-design laptop computer, originally developed for NASA in 1982
    and carrying a price tag of $9,000-. It has a solid magnesium case, a
    gas plasma display and uses the somewhat rare and esoteric non-volatile
    "bubble memory" in lieu of mechanical disk drives for mass storage.
    This unit is in full working order, and includes the original user's
    manual and zippered case. Truly a unique collector's item!"
