It's a Convergent NGEN computer, like mine. The CP-001 is an 80186 CPU.
There were 6 and 8 MHz models (CP-001/6 and CP-001/8). Whether it's worth
picking up is up to you. It certainly is unlike anything I've ever used
before. See if you can find the power supplies, as they won't be much good
without them. You don't need one for each module, though---each module is
stamped with a "Power Code". You only need one power supply for each 10

These are more-or-less identical to the Burroughs B25 machines.
