That's the somewhat famous Datamaster. I have one, and I have some
diskettes, but I have a bad ROM, so it doesn't boot.

The Datamaster is a desktop office machine. From what I understand, it did
word processing and accounting functions. It has a built-in BASIC
interpreter, so you can do some programming. It's based on the 8085 (Intel
house numbered). I can't seem to find the correspondence that I had with the
guy I got mine from, but his wife worked on the development team. The 23 was
the immediate predecessor to the PC.
