EAGLE COMPUTERS INC.
Eagle

Eagle Computers were originally manufactured by AVL (Audio Visual Labs) as a controller for audio-video projectors. The original models, the Eagle I and II, had AV ports on the back.

The computers proved so popular that the AV ports were removed, and standard RS-232 and Centronics ports added. The computer division was spun off and Eagle Computers, Inc. was created.

The complete line of CP/M computers they made was: Eagle I, II, III, IV, and V. All were the same except for the storage. The Eagle I had a single single-sided (SS) double-density (DD) 96-tpi 5.25" floppy-disk drive, the Eagle II had two of these. The Eagle III had two double-sided (DS) DD 96-tpi 5.25" FDD. The Eagle IV had one of these and a 10-Mb hard disk, and the Eagle V had one of these and a 32-Mb hard disk.

The Is and Vs were not sold in large numbers, because of the small storage capacity of the former, and the high capacity and higher price of the latter. Who needed 32 Mb?

There are a few errors in the Spellbinder essay. Spellbinder was a two-man company, founded by UC Davis psychology professor John Bintz and Perry Gee, who wrote the software. You seem to have conflated the story of Eagle Computer president Dennis Barnhardt''s untimely demise in his Ferrari the day the company went public. Lexisoft folded because they never developed a WYSIWYG capability for Spellbinder and the industry passed them by. I don''t know what happened to Perry, but John and his wife retired, sold their house in Davis, CA, bought a motor home and hit the road.

I used an Eagle III around 1984 - the software company I worked for (Eldorado Software) got it to use for porting our products (spreadsheet utilities and templates) to C/PM. We also used it to convert our spreadsheet templates to UltraCalc and SuperCalc (they were all originally written for VisiCalc on the Apple II.) Since we were trying to do a lot of cross-platform development, we had the Eagle, an Apple II, an original IBM PC (no hard drive), a TRS-80, a Commodore 64, Atari 400 and a Basis 80 (Apple clone) all in our workshop!
