PCC 2000 is a professional computer released in 1978. It was designed in 1978 by Pertec, the company which merged with MITS by the end of 1976.
The PCC is conceived as a monobloc machine, where the display and two 8" floppy disk drives are built-in the main case. The mechanical keyboard offers separated numeric and editing keypads.
The system is powered by an Intel 8085 microprocessor and offers 64 KB RAM. The whole thing was apparently delivered with an extended Basic language, which has DOS commands built-in to control the disk drives.
Options advertised were:
- CP/M, Cobol, Fortran, Basic compiler languages
- 10 MB hard disk
- wordprocessor software
The PCC 2000 was originaly called the MITS 300/15 and renamed to reflect the Pertec brand. This machine replaced the MITS Altair S-100 computers.

My grandma has a PCC 2000, Though it''s labelled as a Philips P3000. It definitely is a PCC 2000 though. But, this being South-Africa, we had sanctions and stuff, and companies would do things like this to get around it. I checked the forum and it looks pretty much dead... Actually wanted to ask about the P3000 on it, until I found this
I''ll inherit it one day. Right now, it''s in her garage roof. Just got a chance to see it, and took a few pics. Sadly, due to the weight, I never got the opportunity to boot her up. Will possibly only be there again in December, 5 months away...
It should still work. No physical damage. Can''t wait to try boot it up...
