Rather then clog up the eBay Finds thread with Albert computer information, I figured I'd make a new post in the appropriate area.
I was wondering why it only had 4 slots, but then I noticed it comes with the serial & parallel built in. Does it have 80 column as well?
The Albert computer doesn't have 80 column support but it does have built-in Taxan hi-res RGB. I'm going to scan the manual but it's got some cool features including...
- Apple Compatibility (of course)
- 64k RAM
- Upper and Lower case
- RS 232 serial
- Networking capability via RS 422/423
- Parallel printer port
- Data Security lock... "You can write a simple program to prevent others from seeing your data for example, by making background and text the same color"
- Battery/Charger backup (my battery is missing, thank God)
- Digitized audio control and output
- RGB graphics - high res color graphics (140 x 192 pixels of 256 hues)
- Graphics power pad (Koala Pad came with it)
- Transportability (you can operate at 110 volt (50/60 Hz) or 8 through 32 volt DC for international applications (you find an adapter in your country).
Pretty cool features for that time period. Mine is also hacked to be an Apple II (it was probably vveeerrryyy easy to do).
