Hi Alex,

Well, this is only a hard disk drive with a 1/4" tape drive. Capacity is
around 28 Mb.

There is a Z80 used inside as the controller (if the unit is like my 7912P)
but it certainly cannot be used as a 'computer'. Has HPIB/GPIB (aka
IEEE488) interface.

And yes, it's big. About 30" tall, about a foot wide, maybe 30" deep.
Probably around 100 lbs or more, again, if it's like my 7912P.

Hope this helps you.

Regards, Chris
