    Correct!
    I forgot that some of you guys are beyond being "experts".
    Wasn't trolling either. I did not obtain the pic from the source you mentioned.
    Yes it was a "stock" photo. What do I have to do?
    Break out my own camera and take a picture of a computer that is beyond "rare"? (that I do not own)

    Ok, I posted three more, I am sure that your search prowess will yield exemplary results.
    where did the blinky-binkys go?

    Though it is difficult to see the details due to the picture size,
    the astute collector of fine old computer iron will know the name of this vintage piece.

    Hint: it has a unique "identifier" name.
    It also bears the names of three companies that were merging at that time. ~1977
    It's one that I am missing and have on my "want" list. The Mits Altair ICOM Attache.

    Yes sir!
    There is a gutted one (no S-100 plug in boards - just a BP & KB) on ebay right now with a BIN of $960 plus shipping from NY.

    This is as clear as I can get, sorry.
    They have what looks to be 40 pin headers on the edges. Maybe they all slid into
    a case.

    Oh, I have one:

    es65.jpg

    Yes, I know it says es65, so no prizes for telling it's an, er, es65.

    But nobody seems to know more about the machine than that it comes from Austria, manufacturer Ernst Steiner, and it is supposed to be a multi-user 6502 system. That is literally all I learned over the past 5 years of owning it...

    Anybody knows more?

    Kind regards, Oscar.

    This appears to be some kind of tape drive, that uses micro cassettes and communicates via a serial connection. It seems to have been made in 1984 and the EPROMs are dated Dec 1983.

    There are DIP switches for selecting from 150 to 9600 baud. All I could find that looked anything like a company name was BCD on the label and Telex on the PCB. I'm sure that I could think of a couple of more generic terms that would be impossible to google effectively, but it would take effort.

    Anybody recognize it?
