Strategic Technologies Inc. (Norcross, Ga.)

The PC Traveler was built into a briefcase and had several advanced features. The company claimed to be the first to use a gas plasma display in a commercial microcomputer. The removeable disk cartridges were made by Amlyn, but were never widely used. Finding a cartridge today would be difficult. One of the PC Traveler’s CPUs was devoted to I/O operations.
