What is a cyberdeck?

HMD devices and HIDs are a critical component in any futuristic or cyberpunk world. William Gibson coined the term and idea for such a device, a cyberdeck, in his 1984 novel Neuromancer. A Commodore-like keyboard (deck) connected to either a neural interface, HMD, or small deck-mounted display. Later iterations of the same idea like from Mike Pondsmith's Cyberpunk series espouse the keyboard and just keep the neural interface.
