This was a personal word processor marketed by Toshiba in 1985 as a higher-end version of the Rupo JW-R10. An external memory unit could not be connected with the JW-R10, but with the JW50F, a 3.5inch floppy disk drive was built-in, and the price was ¥128,000. The display was also enlarged from the 10 characters x 2 lines display of the JW-R10 to the 40 characters x 2 lines display of the JW50F.
