You're in luck, I happen to have a Wang Alliance 750CD my grandfather fixed up for me, and I know a bit about it, including the original manual for the system.

All I know is what my system is -- same make, but I dunno if somethings have been altered.

*Manufactured in 1992 by Wang Laboratories, Inc.
*Originally mine had 2 megs of RAM, and the make is compatible with up to 16 installed in the SIMMs(Single In-line Memory Modules, a Wang Labs. Inc. original invention)
*640 KB base memory
*1 meg of extended memory in original, non-modified 750CDs
*750CD originals have a 1.44MB 3.5" floppy drive, and also a CD-ROM drive using a "disk caddy."
*80 megabyte hard drive
*Mine, at least, runs on an 80386SX processor, and has a top speed of 25MHz.
*Key lock should be on the front of the case
*Keyboard port
*PS/2 compatible mouse port
*COM1 and COM2 9-pin serial ports
*25 pin-connector LPT1 parallel(printer) port
*compatible with VGA monitors
*Able to accomodate 3 16-bit full-size option cards
*Socket for optional 25MHz 80387SX-compatible math coprocessor(I have one installed)
*145-watt power supply
*Runs on MS-DOS and/or Windows 3.x -- higher memory and processor power would be required to upgrade to Windows 95 for sure

All of this info except the last fact about the OS is right from the 1st edition of the Wang manual, March 1992, hope it helps.
