FM Towns 2DF
The name FM Towns, means Fujitsu Micro, and the Towns part came from Fujitsu naming their products after Nobel prize winners, in this case Charles Townes, the 1964 winner for physics. The E was dropped before production, so to make clear how to pronounce the name.

This console has arrived at the museum with the kind generosity of Jonny Blanchard of Re Inthused
