*sticks hand in the air*

The museum were given one just a couple of weeks ago that was heading
for the dumpster otherwise. Afraid I know nothing about the systems (nor
did the chap who had it, it seems, describing it first as an IBM)

Anyone have any good resources for info on the machines?

>From Dave's description it sounds like a series II as I don't recall an
integral drive, just a pair of drives in an external box.

A *huge* amount of disks and docs arrived with it though, four or five
times the size of the machine itself!

I'll take a better look at it in the next few days if I get a chance...
