I was given one of these to use when I worked for Petsoft around 1981 it came with twin 5-1/2 inch floppies that cost around £1000 the disk filing system was terrible you could not have read and write access on the same file. I was asked to convert PET games to it but the screen was not bit mapped like the PET to write to the screen you had to poke the X Y co-ordinates into 2 memory locations with the poke value of what you wanted on the screen in a third memory location. I gave up converting games on it. It was not a nice machine.
