I have this machine sitting at my home in Cape Town. (I still haven't taken a look at it yet)


It's missing it's hard drive, as I acquired it from the DOD, so they wouldn't let it go with the drive in the machine. (So I'm going to have to get one of these bad-boys for it!.)



I also have the original keyboard for it, but lack the original EGA monitor. (I will have to see if I can get my hands on a fancy ISA VGA card for it.)

It's a really cool system and definitely one of the most solidly built systems I've ever encountered.

Here's a quick view of the inside of this machine:
