From: Wikipedia - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Unisys_ICON
The ICON was a computer built specifically for use in schools, to fill a standard created by the Ontario Ministry of Education. It was based on the Intel 80186 CPU and ran an early version of the QNX Unix-like operating system. The system was packaged as an all-in-one machine similar to the Commodore PET, and included a trackball for mouse-like control. Over time a number of GUI-like systems appeared for the platform, based on the system's NAPLPS-based graphics system.
The ICON was widely used, mostly in high schools in the mid to late 1980s, but disappeared after that time with the widespread introduction of PCs and Apple Macintoshes. They were also known as the CEMCorp ICON, Burroughs ICON, and finally Unisys ICON when Burroughs and Sperry Corporation merged to form Unisys in 1986. The machine was also nicknamed the "bionic beaver".
It looks like there were several types of ICON computers as this one is not the "all in one" unit described in the Wikipedia article. It is interesting that the CPU is labeled as "Burroughs" while the Monitor and Keyboard are UniSys.
The CPU is very heavy and the keyboard/mouse unit is kinda cool -- very big and robust.
