From the brochure: The new Silent 700 Model 745 Portable Data Terminal from Texas Instruments is the new lightweight champion. In fact, it weighs only 13 pounds... half the weight of the currently most popular portable ... our own Model 735. Since the Model 745 is really the first portable ever to achieve that "briefcase mobility" everybody's been wanting, it travels easily with you ... all day. The 745 portable puts the speed and efficiency of your computer as close as the nearest telephone and electronic outlet ... anywhere.

Whether it's sales order entry, inventory control, program planning or data base search and retrieval, you can have almost immediate access to current, essential data. You can have the right information on the spot ... when it counts. In fact, just plug it in, place the receiver in the built-in acoustic coupler, and you're ready to send or receive up-to-the-second information.

The video shows the Silent 700 on TV in 2011.
