Wow! This beast is built into a desk and its "display" is a tractor feed printer. Shared by neetoday.

This is the IBM System 32, a midrange computer introduced in the mid 1970s recently featured by @TubeTimeUS.

Other than the nice vintage built-in keyboard, this system has a 8" floppy drive, a cute little CRT display with only 20 lines, and a 3/4 horsepower motor to spin the platters of the huge hard drive.

Well, "huge" here refers to the physical dimensions, the storage capacity is only 13.4 megabytes. ;)
