I got one of these about 8 years ago, but without the power supply so I
was never able to fire it up.

It's basically a Nortel digital telephone set and a terminal running an
address book program. There's nothing terribly special about it, other
than it looks really cool (which is why I bought mine :) I paid $25 for
it at WeirdStuff in Sunnyvale. My investment would've been better spent
on the two Lisa 2's they had sitting in a junk heap ;)
