Yes, Commodore is introducing it's PC compatible line to the US
this year. We have sold them in Europe and Canada for the last
two years, and are now introducing them to the US market.
Comes in two flavors:
PC10-1: 512K RAM, One Floppy
PC10-2: 640K RAM, Two Floppies
Both have serial and parallel ports, 4 empty expansion
slots and a wonderful little mono/color graphics card.
Does MDA, CGA, Hercules, Paradise, plus 132 column mode.
Also emulates color modes in monochrome.
Internally expandable for FULL size Hard disk with power
supply to handle it. Phoenix Bios for excellent compatibility.
List price starts at $995. Available first of December.
(I hope) through distributers.
