  That was an ACT Victor 9000, aka Sirius 9000 in Europe. It's a brilliant
machine (by coincidence I saw a Sirius keyboard for sale last Sunday).
8088-based, but not PC compatible. Will run the usual OSs and the usual
software. I can't remember specs of the top of my head. After the
Victor/Sirius, ACT went on to design the Apricot series, with which you may
be more familiar. If you need the full specs, I'll be happy to have a look
for you!
