"MEGAPIXEL" is nice, but enough to EXCLUDE 1024 x 800 ?
"First": The author is unaware of anything prior, or all prior instances

day, two of the three boxes arrived (the third had been pilfered by an
administrator). They were fancy wheeled computer desks for the demo
machines in our classrooms, to replace the vintage 5150 rolling
standup presentation carts that had been the right height (projector
should be taller than desk) and lockable.
