Apparently the 21MX-K is an HP 2105 sold as board kit without a chassis and power supply. Motherboard, firmware board, short risers, and front panel. So you can stick your own embedded computer in your project, add your own specialized boards (and keyboard!).The Arduino controller of the time (but 16 bits!).

> Foggy Memory - The main difference between the 2105 and 2112 (and separately the 2109 and 2113) was mechanical. I seem to recall that the elusive "K" series (which I have a sales brochure for somewhere, but I have never seen in the wild, nor do I know of anyone who has one) was a "pick and choose" at order time - "Roll Your Own 21MX". It was apparently some form of "modular" so you could get bits and pieces of the different models in one model (right down to the number of slots you wanted).
