Seequa
CHAMELEON

The Seequa Chameleon was one of the first luggable computer that contained both a Z80 and an 8088 processor. So it was capable of running either CP/M or early MS-DOS operating system, hence its name.

Basic version featured 128 KB of RAM while the "Chameleon Plus" version had 256 KB on board. Built-in 9" cathodic monochrom screen could be replaced by an external color monitor to use the 16-color text mode.The machine was also available with an internal hard disk.

Seequa also manufactured two desktop versions, PC and XT, of the Chameleon, as well as an obscure version called Chameleon 325 that used the very rare and short-lived Dysan 3.25" floppy disc drive.

The following software were bundled with the system:
- MS-DOS for the 8088 and CP/M-80 (8 bit OS), CP/M-86 (16 bit OS)
- M Basic-86 for 8088
- G W Basic - Microsoft's Advanced BASIC including graphics
- Perfect Writer - Word Processing for 8088
- Perfect Calc - Spreadsheet Software for 8088
- Perfect Speller - 50,000 word spelling checker for 8088
- Condor I - database management system for 8088

Worked for the company from 1983 to 1985. Started in the assembly part and ended as what the called line leader in the final test area. Had a lot fun working with them.

I met my husband while working at Seequa in 1984! I am surprised that there are so many still in existence. We do not own a Chameleon but I still have my husband and 4 kids!! Tony - I remember you!!!

I worked for Seequa and remember the first shipment leaving the building!!! I am so impressed that some of you still have this computer.

Dave, Dave, John and Kip worked so hard to make this company a success. It was fun while it lasted!!!
