Does it come equipped with a magnifying glass?? 


A magnifying glass wouldn't help much - the display has such poor contrast you wouldn't be able to distinguish the pieces anyway. I can't imagine trying to play a game on this!

You dip the keychain ring in water and make a magnifier with the trapped H2O, I think.

The Excalibur LCD Keychain, model 410K-CS might possibly be the cheapest chess computer. I found one at Fry's for $4.99.

Yes, I have it.  I've had it for about a year now.  Anything in particular you'd like to know about it?
