I just like the size and configuration. I've been looking for one for a while, it seems they were sort of common at one point. They were whitelabeled by Bell & Howell (educational system) and Olson. I had a "cheap attack" a few years ago on one with the full front panel and have been looking for one for a decent price since then.
I have a similarly sized TEI chassis, but it uses a Constant Voltage Transformer in the power supply, and it's *very* loud. Louder than my CompuPro's CVT. I suspect it has a loose lamination or something.

The BYT-8 MPU board is pretty common, I don't know if it was sold as a separate product or what. I've had three, plus two bare, unassembled boards. The 1/2K RAM board seems to be rare (I know of one in a Bell & Howell system).
