It's been awhile so I'm not positive but I think it takes 3/4 length
boards and IIRC one slot is 8 bit and the other is 16 bit.

I've seen similar luggables that have color screens. A lot of them were
originally used for network snoopers. I have a color one somewhere. I don't
remember who made it but I think Dolch built some. You might check E-bay
for Dolch computers. The snoopers usually have three slots but I don't
think ANY of the lunch box size machines will support a FULL length card.
They simply not big enough. If you really need to use full size cards then
check for one of the suitcse size Compaq Portable or Portable II or
something of that size.
