Very cool. It looks like it has a carthridge software slot on the
righthand side.

Being this was made in 1981 (according to the page), and based on the way
TI did things, I would not be surprised if there was a TI-99/4a at the
core of this machine, with the carthridge slot used to throw different
applications onto the machine for various data communications scenarios.

I've never seen this before. It would be nice to find one.
