ND-100 CX serial 843 is an early machine with the classical orange color scheme. It is housed in a small cabinet. The serial number plate have the NORD-100 name and so does the front panel too.
The machine is probably not in it's original configuration as the previous owner planned to make a media converter machine and had started to put together the hardware for it by adding a 5.25 inch floppy drive.

I have spent far too little time looking into what this system really contains, it's either been out of reach or other machines have taken priority.

Just arrived in the new house... no, I didn't pick the color of the wall, it was so when I bought the house. Good match though.

Status

Probably complete and in running condition. Other than that I don't know a lot about it. I haven't tested it or even opened up the crate to see the configuration.
