This japanese computer seems quite powerful. The main board is located into the main case, under the monitor.
Inside this main case there are 6 expansion slots which is quite enough ! Thus a lot of expansion boards were available (disk, printers, 8088, Z80 boards, etc).
An interesting feature is that there's a little trap-door on the keyboard which reveals some cool control switches : a power switch, a text mode switch (80 / 40 columns), a reset button and volume control knob. Quite useful !

Memory came in two sizes, 16k and 64k. Our School computer lab was full of these but only 2 had 64k in 1985/86 then replaced with IBM xt clones

@Rusty, I would be interested in those cards. Do you still have the schematics?
