PowerBook Duos are rather interesting machines and probably would make sense as part of an early Mac or early notebook/subnotebook exhibit, in my opinion.
I'm getting my 280c and my 2300c into working shape finally. I managed to pick up a large stash of parts some years ago; feel free to reach out if you need anything. I don't think I have extra color screens though.
