The DAI was renowned for its graphic capabilities but was too expensive !

A lot of peripherals were developped for this computer : a hard disk (8 MB), several floppy disk drives and even a robot !! The DAI can run under CP/M.

Walter Belgers reports us that this system was chosen for a television course on computers in the Netherlands, instead of a computer made by Texas Instruments. What TI then did was to stop selling EPROMs to DAI. In 1983, TI was one of the few manufacturers of EPROM's, so DAI had many problems delivering the systems and almost went bankrupt.

I own a DAI with 48 kbyte RAM. At the time I was 16 but made a little box that, when connected between DAI and cassette recorder allows the DAI to read/write with 9600 baud instead of 300 baud. I still own that one-of-a-kind piece of electronics too. If anyone is interested please $ me mail at alinoe dot com with username carlo

Ahh, used to drool over the articles in the colored magazines dealing in personal computers, Personal Computer World being the king, so to speak. And the DAI was much drooled over.
In the end, Tiki-100 won out… :)
