This is a case of two computers and one name.

The Video Brain is also a desktop, CP/M microcomputer built in the early
1980's. It physically resembles an Applied Digital Data Systems ADDS 70
intelligent terminal with dual 5 1/4" floppies mounted beside the monitor.

Now you must investigate further and tell us which one it is.

Yours in good faith.
