I'm not an authority on the MDS800, but the one I have is actually
integral with the display and came with a keyboard. Certainly, I'm able
to use it without an RS232 terminal.

Please don't take this the wrong way, but if you have to ask that question
you may want to reconsider buying it. The MDS800 provided a complete
hardware and software environment for developing products using some of
the older Intel CPUs. It is not really what I'd think of as being a "pc".
