I saw this beastie in the Sparc booth at Comdex in Atlanta last week.

They might bring it to the US next year.  Price they are talking about is

It's a Sparc station, portable, LCD display with 1024 x 9??.  And it's fast.
They rate it at 13.5 Vax Mips.  Pretty impressive for something that fits in
your briefcase.  I saw it, I wanted it, but would have no use for it - a
really neat toy, and a great too I imagine for some people.
