We're not yet entirely sure about this one ... from what little information we can gather, this machine featured the higher end gas plasma display and has a hard disk (size unconfirmed). This machine led the way to the more advanced "Exec. Partners" that included built in printers, etc. If you have more information on this machine, please let us know!

Owned my exec partner since 1980’s, added h.d. ran dos and basic, c language pi program in hours compare to seconds processing time on layer machine, has a red plasma screen and thé thermal printer has very high quality output. Remind US to be humble, hey.

I bought one of these in 1985. It came with 2 5.25 floppy drives, but I had a 30 Mb RLL drive installed in place of one of them. It worked well, but the printer was useless. It had a padded bag with a shoulder strap.

I have the original floppy that came with the old best.

A followup to the posting I made earlier. The RAM is 640K not 640M. Oops.

I have one of these that seems to have a 400MB hard disk (At startup it reports having 840 cyls.). It also has 640MB of RAM. The built-in printer isn't working, (it errors out), but I was able to, despite damage to the hard disk, install DOS 5.0 on it.
