The FM Towns II Personal Computer

Japanese PCs have a long history of sporting brilliant, quirky ideas and wild design decisions, and are almost always lovely to look at. This particular FM Towns II I run into while searching through eBay is a fine example of the above. It's a great looking, elegant, compact machine with a built-in CD-ROM drive and dual disk drives, that comes both with a mouse and keyboard.

Now, as this update on the original line of FM Towns computers is rather obscure a) I can't say much about the things technical capabilities and b) it's probably quite rare -- at least in the West. Apparently, the PC was released in 1989 and came with the added ability to read audio CDs and upgraded graphics.
