The Eagle PC 2 was my first PC. Its most unusual feature was that it had 24 function keys! The founder of Eagle died in a sports car crash hours after his firm went public.

I worked at Motorola in the early 80's designing video display monitors. Eagle was a big customer of ours as their Eagle PC sales really took off.

IBM sued Eagle for IP infringement as the Eagle PC BIOS was a little too close to that in the IBM PC. Next the CEO of Eagle drove his car off a California clifftop and the company was wound up. Motorola ended up taking a large number of Eagle PCs as payment for money owed- and then sold the units to Moto employees. For many at Motorola this would have been their first PC purchase.
