It wasn’t much bigger than a proprietary “PDA” class machine like the Psion Series 5, but had all the functionality of a full Windows based PC, and even ran Windows 95 out of the box.
The first of the “sub notebook” computers, it came in a variety of models, and featured a 6.1″ or 7.1″ Colour TFT screen.

The “mouse” was quite unusual in that it formed part of the fold up screen panel (just to the right of the screen). The “nipple” (stop tittering at the back there!) was accessible from the thumb from the screen side of the panel, and the two buttons were accessible for the fingers from the other side allowing quite a usable mouse-like action in a very space efficient way.
Needless to say the unit itself didn’t have a built-in Floppy or Optical drive, this is was necessary to use externally connected devices to load software.
