The NC150 hybrid was an NC200 in the body of an NC100.
It offered 128KB of memory and an interface for connecting a floppy disk drive. However, it was only sold in France and Italy. But the NC100 and NC200 "form factors" appear to have lived on in the shape of the Brainium DreamWriter 450 and 500, portable machines aimed at the US education market.

The first NTS Dreamwriter, the Dreamwriter 225 is actually a rebadged NC100 with rom version 1.06.
Next models have Nec V20 processors instead of Z80 and different applications on rom.
Dreamwriter 500 is supposed to be a NC200 with V20 processor and backlit screen.
