We unlearned so many things needed to live through the #ClimateCrisis -- "First World Problem" will get a hell of a new meaning.

a video terminal seemingly as frontend to romanian PDP-11 clones (the
CORAL series), according to https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/PDP-11#Unlicensed_clones
HC85 and HC85+ (aka HC85 extended).
This seems to be the start of their home computing series of HC85,
HC88, HC90, HC91, HC91+ (HC128), HC2000, HC386.
HC85 is based on #ZXSpectrum. The manufacturer was ICE Felix.
The models seem to fluctuate in design as I find HC85, HC85+, HC88,
HC90 with sometimes similar or different cases.
Warmup time. Random nice looking machines:

Let me return to digging in unorthodox #vintagecomputing places.
Initially I tried Mongolia but couldn't find anything before the 90s.
I find hilarious cliché images regarding colors, setup and hair
And once started, wow, I found lots of *gorgeous* machines, stay
