I have, in storage, an Epson Equity II.

I thought it was an XT clone with a 'real' Intel 8088, but I'm not 100% 
sure on that.  Over the years it ran MS DOS 2.1->5.0, which is where I 
think I left it.  Hasn't been powered on in over 20 years.  I think I 
still have the original keyboard and green monochrome display.

Rest of the specs:

640 K RAM
Hercules-compat graphics
DSDD 5.25" flopppy
20 MB MFM (Seagate ST-225) HD.
