640kb, right?

The tagline of this blog is "For People Who Think 640kb is Enough." so here' I present a portable computer from 1988; one year after my birth, with just that much memory. On top of 640kb memory, there's dual 720kb floppies, a CGA resolution LCD (which has a proper aspect ratio; most portables from the time didn't), a full size desktop style keyboard, an NEC V30 cpu and, to tie it all together, the ability to run from 10 D-Cell batteries or from an ac adapter. Aside from the rather unconventional form-factor, it's hardware makes it a pretty typical XT clone of the day.
