Unfortunately no English pages, it seems.

Here is dumb translations of this spec table :

Oh, the most important point, the price is 56,400-Yen (about US$480).

BTW, according to the manual, its installer will claim at first:
# sysinst

SSD/Linux 0.4-20051205/2.6.12 Installer

  Why do you choose Linux ?
  We recommend you to use NetBSD, FreeBSD, or OpenBSD instead.

Are you sure to install [y/N] ? y
Really [y/N] ? y

It isn't smart ...

Why not NetBSD? ;-)
