I picked it up yesterday. I was mostly trying to determine it's size and
heft, as the guy who had it characterized it as being a behemoth. Turns
out I was able to lift it into my SUV after taking off the skins and
removing the 8" hard drives.

It's a model P75. I was under the impression that it was 68000 based but
being Z8000 based makes it much cooler. This machine was going to be used
to create a trading floor for the seafood market, but the company went
bust before they got very far.

I have the marketing literature for the machine but haven't had a chance
to go through it yet.
