I bought a Vector 3 with two floppy drives and a Spinwriter printer that was hard wired to the I/O board with a 1" diameter cable. If you moved the system, everything had to be carried together. I bought to do spreadsheets. Execuplan was a little buggy$ you had to do column and row operations in a certain order or you started over. But, the most fun I had was adding a 32K memory board in order to run an early medical billing software application. You had to cut a trace from the new board to the BUS then solder a jumper between the two boards, which yielded a total of 56K of memory, I think. Latter I became a CompuPro Dealer, which was an awesome machine.

When I was 11 years old I follow my first computer formation, in Rancagua (Chile). The Vector 3 was the first PC that I use, in 1986. It's funny to see it after 21 years... in a museum. I getting older?

1982 - I was using this computer at a magazine publishers. We used DBASE2, Memorite III and were connected via Centronics interface, to a large, wide, noisy Mannesman Tally dot-matrix printer for printing subscription labels every month.

If I can remember rightly, we either had an external 5 or a 10 megabyte hard drive. Backups were very, very slow every month with the boxes of 5 1/4" floppy disks.

"Vector Graphics" was the name of the company, not the name of this particular computer.

Why was it called "Vector Graphics" if it has no graphic modes?

Can some expert answer my question?

OK Bye

I think I had one of these I still have the large folder with the operating instructions and imformation on how the various programms that came with it worked. The reason I am not sure is that although mine looked the same it had a duel 5 1/4 inch disc drives in a seperate unit
