Matra Hachette

The Matra Alice 90 is the successor of the unsuccessful Alice 32 and is 100% compatible with this computer. This computer was designed, like its predecessor, to be used as a "first contact" computer.

Genlocking allowed the user to use the computer and watch TV simultaneously.

The ROM contains a version of the world famous Microsoft BASIC, but this version of BASIC can't access to the highest graphic mode (320x250), it could be accessed from the built-in assembler.

Like its predecessor, this machine was also unsuccessful.



You can try your local ebay or the ebay of other countries but since it was a commercial failure that means not many were sold in the first place so finding one for sale is going to be extremely difficult and you''ll probably end up paying collectors (high) prices for them. Shipping will also be a consideration if buying from a long distance seller or outside one''s own country, and let''s also not forget the possibility of customs duty.
