Logica VTS2200 ('Kennet')
Notes provided by the donor of this object:
I have a 1980's vintage Logica VTS2200 (aka Kennet, also branded and sold by ICL)...The system was an early desktop computer for office automation which nearly bankrupted Logica when the IBM PC took off.
The Kennet systems were still widely used for office automation at Logica when I joined in late 1988. In those days there was still a "typing pool" too, to which you could post manuscripts and a floppy. There was an author, I believe Beryl Bainbridge, who used one of these (not this one) for writing her books. She shunned the PC because the Kennet did what she wanted and she knew how to use it.
