Yes, a BP compatible CRT unit. However, it does not (yet?) work well
together with graphics under all circumstances. So you can try it on
your own risk (and perhaps improve the unit's ability to work
together with graphics), but when working with GRX, it might be
easier to use the GRX keyboard functions (at least for now).
