I want to say a Z-89. All one piece right? Let me guess, Military surplus
again? I think it ran CP/M, in fact I think my set of CP/M manuals is from
one of those systems. I've not seen one in about eight years, and never
used one, so don't really know anything about them. I know the Navy used
them as administrative computers on shore, I never saw them on ship, but
that doesn't mean a few didn't make it there. Don't know how popular they
were elsewhere.
