My very first programming job, when I was 19, was programming accounts receivable, sales lead tracking, and creating some spreadsheets on a Royal Alphatronic PC in 1986, in Peabody at the New England Home Planning Center, a place that sold modular homes. 33 years later and I''m still hacking. All the coding I did on this thing was in Beginners All Purpose Symbolic Instruction Code. I forget the name of the software, but PeachTree rings a bell. Would love to find one on eBay for a trip down memory lane.

All this is about the TA PC 8, from wich I have 1 Matmos and 2 TA mainunits 1x F1 and 1x F2 Floppy and a 4x 5 MB HD(seagate 225) and FD80/40 trackn system and lots of software CP/M 2.2 $3 ,NZ-com,Z3plus and diskbasic based.
But there is also a PC16 also a mainunit and 2 external floppydrives with 8088 cpu and MS-DOS compatible. I have one but have n''t used it a long time so I can''t remember how much $ in any case it will not start from IBM or Microsoft disks.

As a teenager, one of my friends had one of these. However, his was branded by Royal and included the monitor, floppy drive and software. I don't know if he still has it or not.
