No, this one looks to be different. In particular, that tape
cartridge sticking out of the top section (technology that hadn't
been invented yet) and the bottom section is differently constructed
(note how the CDC keyboard forms a "lip" on the front of the machine,
where the Westworld gizmo seems to use a different mounting system.
Note the ventilation slots on the bottom of the machine--the
Westworld ones do not extend as far up the side.
It's something else, quite possibly a calculator. Perhaps Rick
Bensene will recognize it.
