Description

This object consists of three pieces:
A G400 tablet-style computer; A side-opening, portfolio-style leather or leatherette and fabric case with 4 metal snaps that engage corresponding snaps on the bottom of the computer; and
The custom battery pack, which also forms the bottom part of the back of the computer
case. An adhesive sticker on the front of the computer reads, "Solid-State Mass Storage By SunDisk," but there is no memory card in what appears to be the memory card slot, under the pivoting lid on the top edge of the computer. Note that the sticker says "SunDisk," not "SanDisk.". The square indentation in the upper right-hand corner of the front panel, where some G400s have the GO Corporation logo, does not display the logo on this object.
