The laptop for the time was standard, but had a thicker base which allowed for a printer, the paper was fed under the keyboard and the actual printer unit was under the screen at the back.

A small flap allowed you to access the print head (half the size of an oxo cube) and ink tank (just slightly larger than an oxo cube)

This allowed you to print one sheet at a time, in monochrome and very slowly.

One accessory was a trackball on a handle, it looked like a handheld microphone, the ball was at the top allowing you to use your thumb to move the mouse with 2 triggers at the front as left and right mouse buttons.

Many thanks to Alex Hubbuck for the information.
