Found this looking for some other stuff. Sadly I dont have the budget atm for it (over 3 hours away so would have to do some car maintance as well, plus budget to get her working again), so figured I pass it along, perhaps someone here would be interested...

The 850 is sort of a feature-depleted 860 IPS. This unit doesn't seem to have the CRT Display option; just work it through the LCD display attached to the Hitype KSR. (early Artec word processors worked the same way--CRT was a pricey option). The 850 has all of its software in ROM, unlike the 860. It really is a dedicated word processor.

Eh if the 8" drives still work, a good deal still... rest would be free if not net a few dollars. :)

But you hit it on the head, I really would like an 860 not the 850. That was the deal breaker for me.
