I have one, but I don't think they're all that common. I also have the
appropriate TechRefs.

It's really a re-boxed PC/XT. It's got the PC/XT motherboard (anf yes,
you can do the 640K mod), PC floppy controller (linked to 2 half-height
360K drives) and CGA video card (linked to a monochrome composite monitor
using one of the internal header connectors). The monitor seems to be a
Zenith chassis.
