Tomy
Tutor MK II

Well I don't know much things about this one. It seems that the only thing that differs from the Tomy Tutor is the keyboard. Now there is a real keyboard, all white. So the funky pink space bar has disapeared, booo :o(

It seems too that this model was only sold in Japan for a short time in 1984, one year after the release of its young brother the Pyutta "1".

If you want to know more about this rare machine, please read the description of the Pyuuta/Tomy Tutor.

I have a pair of Pyuuta Mk IIs. As noted, the keyboard is not the same as the US Tutor''s. That is not the only difference, however. The Tutor has two ROMs: one for the OS (including GBASIC) and one for BASIC. Only the first ROM is present in the Mk II. There is a cartridge (BASIC1) that adds this ROM to the Mk II so that it ends up being just like a US Tutor, but it doesn''t come that way out of the box. There is also a printer interface for it that plugs into the expansion port at the back (this can connect to standard Centronics-style parallel printers using the included cable).

There''''s an interesting site about TMS99xx stuff :

http://www.avjd51.dsl.pipex.com/

Has quite a lot of stuff on the TI TMS9900/TMS9995 hardware including a breadboard self-build computer based on the TMS9995

Well worth a look !
