Don't forget the three PROMs ;-)

There were at least 2 models of the TS-1; the TS-1SP added paging & scrollback among other features, and there was also the similar TS-100.

Their magnetic core & transformer keyboard technology always intrigued me; very reliable & spillproof but I never saw it used anywhere else.
