I just picked up one of these, and it seems to work fine, but I can find very little documentation on it.

(This isn't the Data General One, a portable, or the Dasher terminal -- confusing naming!)

It has 640K RAM, and from what I read an 8088 chip, and comes with MS DOS 2. Two 3.5" floppies, no hard disk.

I am trying to figure out if there is any way to expand it -- it has three openings in the back with what look like they might be proprietary slots, but I am not too familiar with equipment of this vintage.

More later if I can figure things out.

I just picked up one of these too.

Did you get any of the DG-specific software that came with it? I.e. the utility to manage screen brightness!
