Re: FS: Apple IIc LCD Flat Panel Display

I remember Roy Scheider using this on his IIc in 2010: The Year We Make Contact. From the front, it's such an irreducible design--a simple rectangle. It was a cool concept, but the IIc being "luggable" at best, was so crippled by the power supply requirements, it was just impractical as a portable computer (at least compared to the GRID Compass 1101). The Macintosh Portable was even worse in this regard. Of course, the 1980s had miniaturization down. Batteries were the big problem. (Like the Motorola DynaTACs melted and engulfed in flames.)
