This one has the reputation of being the first PC clone--it copied the
bus and general feel of the Altair 8800, but did it with power. A bigger
and better power supply, and a more powerful look and feel. It just looked
more professional, industrial.
I've always wanted one of these! Back when I was selecting my first
computer, I considered this one, but as it was very newbe unfriendly, and
required lots of extras just to match what came standard with The
Digital Group, I opted for the latter.
This one was a gift of Tom Apel, who interesting enough, has thedigitalgroup.org
This is going to take a long time--I am so busy! I noticed one thing
about this computer almost instantly: Those paddle switches are fragile!
This lesson was learned, thanks to my sweet daughter.
I'll update when I have made some progress
