That is a box that was current around 1987 or so. I admin'ed one. They came
in different configs, but ours was a dual 486/33 with 256M of memory. If
this actually is NCR logo'd, then it might be a Pentium. Takes 50 pin scsi
disk inside- I think there was room for 2 or 3 5 1/4" fullheight drives. No
RAID or anything like that. Probably a QIC tape drive as well.

They ran "real" AT&T SysVR4. You needed the magic "enabler" from AT&T to run
dual processor- I'm sure it was just some kernel module, but we paid _big_
$$ to add the second CPU. I didn't know enough at the time to figure out
what the enabler actually did :-)

I wouldn't pay money for one, but that's me. After some of the episodes I
had with ours, I _might_ pay money for 5 minutes of alone time with a 5
pound maul :-)
