OK, what's the earliest graphics display system held by any of you
"graphics display system" is anything that creates a graphics image
with a display: calligraphic, storage tube, plasma, raster, etc.
Block character graphics don't count (or I would include my Commodore
CBM 8032 and all the stupid terminals :).
My timeline goes like this, based on year introduced:
196?: Evans & Sutherland PS-300 terminal
197?: Tektronix 4010 terminal
1974: Tektronix 4014 terminal
1977: Hewlett-Packard 2648A terminal
Hewlett-Packard 1350A graphics translator
