Object is a plastic case with a carrying handle on top. A full keyboard snaps into the front of the case. When the keyboard is released (by two tabs on the face of the keyboard) it exposes an LCD screen. On the left of the screen is "COMPAQ" and on the right, "386/20". On the bottom of the edge of the screen is the label and logo "Network General Sniffer". The screen can be released by two more tabs and then it swings out and up. A cover is missing from the upper rear side, exposing a PCB.
