Does anyone out there in net-land know of a vendor who sells
a conversion kit to allow a US-made IBM PC built for 60Hz to run
on 50Hz?  What happens if you try to run a 60Hz machine on 
50Hz power without modification?  My guess is that the screen
would flicker, but would the buss timing be messed up also?

I would also be interested in other 16 bit machines which are
60/50Hz switch selectible and which are also capable of
running a spreadsheet program and word processing (eg Wordstar).

Reply via mail would be appreciated, unless of general interest to all.
