Bruc 100

This is a rare case of a home computer planned and produced in Italy.

This somewhat obscure computer is "almost" a MSX 1 machine without bearing any MSX logo. The only difference seems to be that instead of MSX Basic it has a "MCL extended Basic".

MSX-1 modules are known to be usable on this machine without problems. The computer looks very much like an ordinary keyboard. It seems that this machine has a very tight relation to the courses of the "2f" computer school. The manufacturer, Frael (Florence, Italy) belongs to the same company as "2f" and both are still existing today.

The first version occurred in 1987, the second in 1988, distinguishable only by the motherboards and serial numbers (see the following examples):

1987: AE/821
1988: 08971

This machine seems to be not only obscure, but also rather rare.
