This was an i286 computer.... A desktop model with MCA slots, unlike the PS/2 model 30 with its ISA slots. I want to say it shipped at 10MHz, and most likely cost way too much... Because the 30's slots were vertical, it had a smaller form factor than the 50's horizontal MCA slots.

It was also known as the 8580.

Reference disks for this model can be found here.
