This was my work computer from the mid nighties after a Compaq Aero. Before VGA projectors got popular, I could remove the LCD lightpipe/cover, put it on an overhead projector and do a presentation. It was rather dim but usable. The LCD was made by Hosiden, early promoter of LCD technology.

It was replaced by a 560. The 560 was great at the time, light and powerful. One day I turned it off at the Ottawa airport and when I got to Washington, it wouldn't turn back on. So I went back to the 755CDV for a year or two and skipped the 570 generation.

Next was a X20 instead of the T20 everybody else used in the office.

A new AC charger just arrived and I had the 755CDV turn on for the first time in a few years. It has a 1.2GB HDD and 40MB of RAM running Windows98, 32MB of it is on a JEDEC DRAM card (not SIMM). Windows2000 wouldn't load on this computer.
