It's essentially a PC/XT motherboard and gear in a luggable case, based on
the 8086/8088 processors (I'm sure it's 8086 but that group of XT class
machines). While not exactly hard to find, they tend to be in rough shape many
times when you do find them. Replacement drives and other parts are generally
directly useable from XT class desktops.
