It is a Lenovo N21 Chromebook*, running Chrome OS 71.0.3578.127, in
developer mode**.  "sed --version" reports:

  sed (GNU sed) 4.4
  Copyright (C) 2017 Free Software Foundation, Inc.
  License GPLv3+: GNU GPL version 3 or later <>.
  This is free software: you are free to change and redistribute it.

*  Yes, I am aware of Chromebrew; I am using it as a starting point
   but trying to bootstrap as much as possible from source rather than
   installing from binary packages (long story).

** Chrome OS provides no shell access at all, nor ability to run any
   binaries other than its own, unless in developer mode; presumably
   none of its own scripts need a fully functional sed.
