I can't tell you much about it, although if it's the machine I am thinking
of, the monitor is actually a separate box that locks in place. It's a
68000-based machine, and has GPIB as standard. SOme of them have a ROM board
containing (I think) HP-basic, while others boot from floppy.

The HP86 is basically an HP85 without the built-in monitor,tape drive,
or printer, but with GPIB as standard. The 9121 is a single-sided version of
the 9122 if that's any help.
