Sounds like they may have confused the A22 Control Unit with a CPU?
Although that doesn't explain any HDDs ... all the A22 pictures I've found
show it having just a 5.25" floppy drive. In line with the confusion theme,
perhaps the "HDDs" are really tape cartridges?
If the price is right, maybe it could be a fun peripheral project for one
of the guys with the Multiprise systems? :O
