Altos Computer Systems
Serie 5

The Serie 5 was a multi-user system. It could support from 1 to 3 users. It had a 5 MB Winchester hard-drive and could be upgraded with a 10 MB hard-drive (for the Serie 5D only). It could use CP/M, MP/M II or Oasis as its operating system.

The serie 5 was quite similar to the Altos ACS-8000 which was a bit more powerful.



I just got an ALTOS serie 5-15DE and it came with two 5.25" floppy drives. I haven''t started it yet so I can''t tell anything about the capacity.

I had one of these. It had a 2 x 5 1/4" floppy drives, NOT 8", of 800Kb capacity each.
