F > FRANKLIN  > PC 5000, 6000, 8000   

PC 5000, 6000, 8000

Before Apple forced Franklin out of the desktop computer market entirely, the company released three PC compatible systems, the PC-5000 (picture), PC-6000 and PC-8000.

Both were quite similar, based on the Intel 8088. Depending on the versions, they had 512 to 640 KB of RAM, one or two 360 KB floppy drives, standard serial and parallel ports, but also built-in game port, composite video and audio outputs.

With the loss of its desktop computer business, Franklin concentrated on its handheld line, which was introduced in 1986. In the years since, Franklin has sold handheld computers that acted as personal organizers, word processors and dictionaries.

We need more info about this computer ! If you designed, used, or have more info about this system, please send us pictures or anything you might find useful.
