The Tempest 5150 (or whatever the Tempest designation was for the IBM
XT) that I have looks like a regular B&W monitor. When I took off the
cover, the shielding became apparent :).
It has been quite a few years since I looked at it, but I believe the
Tempest IBM XT I have is complete including Tempest keyboard and monitor.
