Yes, interesting, but the computer in the first article is NOT a 9512, it looks much more like the 8256 (cannot quite tell if there's a second floppy drive, I think not).

The computer in the second article does look like the 9512.

Prob not the writer's fault.   The first article I guess just had a 'stock' photo attached, at least they took the trouble to get the right manufacturer!
