If that's one of the original SPARCBooks, at one point I owned the very
first unit that was sold to the public in the US.  A doctor had bought
it and used it for a number of years, then I bought it in the late
90s.  Played with it for a couple of months, then sold it after I got
a SPARCBook 3-series.

Unfortunately the SB1 died an untimely death when a motorcycle fell
over on it in a garage, I found out later.
