Only in Israel

Ad for the Novag chess computer. Shachmat, Nov. 1996 (inside front cover)
For the "only in Israel" file: Traveling chess sets and, later, computers existed (and were advertised) for decades, if not centuries, all over the world. But probably only in Israel does the advertisement say proudly (inside the grey-colored banner above the computer's image): "portable computers for travel and reserve army duty".
