This is a word processor, that uses an electronic typewriter as an in and out device. The predecessor, the 1010 was originally produced by Syntrex Inc. Eatontown in 1980, but sold under the Olivetti brand name, it used the Syntrex operating system. ETS stands for Electronic Typing System.

This redesigned model used an 80186 CPU (Central Processor) had more memory, but was otherwise completely compatible with the 1010 model.

Text could be written on the typewriter, then adjusted on the main unit, before being printed out on the typewriter, the main unit also acts as the storage for documents.

The picture shows the base and monitor of our ETS 2010 attached to the ET115, a whole range of typewriters could be used.

The ETS 2010 also had it's own back up of two 5.25 disk drives, also a boot disk using CP/M 86 is required to initially run.

The cabinet socket plugged into a central unit which could support 8 or 16 ETS units, depending on the model, two printers could also be attached. There was a 10 MB hard drive option (later 20 MB Winchester HDD) which was as tall as a fridge freezer.
