Operating memory was either 256k or 512K. dual 6" floppies and optional 5 or 10 Megabyte external hard drives. The model shown was intended as a system dedicated to educational use. This incorporated early verisions of software to allow a student to draw and color objects. The acutal commerical version was a single cabinet design with a 80 column dot matrix printer using 4" calculator rolls the display was an orange monochrome 8" monitor.
