Just before I left Olivetti in the dealers division in Australia, the manager of that section had all the state reps fly to Sydney for the release of the P6040 to be used as a low end Ledger machine (combined with a small printer) to replace the A2. This was just around the time when screen based PC''s were coming out, hence few P6040''s were ever sold

As I recall, the selling price in the US was around $4,500.

This was the first "computer" I ever touched. It was my senior year in high school, 1978-79, so I would guess this was made in 77 or 78. Our public high school suddenly had one of these, and no teacher knew what to do with it. Four or five of us got hold of a BASIC book and tried to figure out if we could make any of the programs work. I think we might have programmed some sort of dice game. I think we had to write our own random number generator, though.

Hello, does anybody know where to get a new rubber band for the P6040 disk drive? The original one has lost its elasticity.
