According to the _Microcomputer Buyers Guide_ (c) 1984, Byte books:

"NNC offers two systems - the 80 and 80W. Basic features of the
model 80 are: Z-80A processor (4MHz); 64kB RAM memory; two RS-232-C
serial ports; three 8-bit parallel ports; and two Shugart 801R 8"
floppy disks. The 80W offers different storage capability with one
8" floppy disk combined with one 8.4MB Winchester hard disk. The
basic Model 80 and Model 80W systems are single-user in operation but
can be expanded with additional terminals and printers for up to six
users. A maximum of 256kb RAM memory is accomodated."

The entry goes on to say that it came with CP/M standard, but you
could also get OASIS from Phase One Systems "for multiuser

The listed address (for what it's worth) for NNC is:

NNC Electronics,
15631 Computer Lane
Huntington Beach, CA. 92649

Sounds like a pretty stock CP/M machine, typical of the era . . .
