There is a CP/M computer for sale on a Swedish auction site:

The seller is very informative about what is included, how much it weighs and so on, but forgot to mention both brand and model. Can anyone of you identify it? The BuyItNow price is about $55-60 excl. shipping, but of course it could be picked up instead.

Doesn't look familiar AT ALL. What country is it in? Babel Fish can't get a handle on it.

Appears to be an ol' NCR unit, but which model, I can't tell. Is there some way to get a better image (zoom, etc)?

In any case, a good friend of mine bought it so eventually he will be able to tell exactly what it is. Someone else suggested Cromenco, but the world of CP/M computers is Greek to me.

It turns out to be something home built, labeled VAC 700 in custom made casing. Don't bother Google, you probably won't find anything.

It looks like one of those machines from the "Jumpin' Jack Flash" movie - what they had I have no idea unfortunately, there was a scene in the film where you could read a name on the side of the monitor - though your machine would also have it clearly labelled!
