NEC
PC 6601

The PC-6601 is basicaly a PC-6001 MK2 with a built-in 3.5'' disk drive. The second optional disk drive could also be mounted. The N60m Basic od the PC-6001 MK2 has been enhanced to the N66 Basic.

The japanese adverts focused on the fact that this computer could sing with its optional speech synthesizer!

More info badly needed!

As told concerning the PC 6001 MK II, this computer is quite similar to an Amstrad CPC... and Like the british CPC664 or CPC6128 is supplied with in-built diskDrive.

But on CPC it was the "exotic" 3"inch diskdrive.

Would be fun to see if the two computers may actually be compatible provided some minor Hacks or emulation...

This "Basic N66" is an enhancement of the Basic found in PC-6001 MK2 but is the same Basic that can be found on the PC-6001 MK2 SR (Basic N66 $ N66SR)
