it's early 16bit pasocom NEC produced as successor of PC-8801 series...
PC-8801 series itself is successor of PC-6xxx series...
PC-98 series is unlike others before it based on 16bit CPU and pushed as business machine at that time while PC-88 series was mainly aimed at home... PC-98 evolved though later with WIN compatibility and from what I recall later PC-98 series is quite different beast from early PC-98 series...
maybe someone can fill in with more details as I used PC-8801SRMkII myself but lusted out for one in early 90s... (couldn't afford one though...)

It also had a rather spiffy version of Popful Mail. A sublimely enjoyable platformer from Falcom.
