EG2000 Colour Genie

The EACA EG2000 Colour Genie is a computer produced by Hong Kong-based manufacturer EACA. It followed their earlier Video Genie I and II computers (and was released around the same time as the business-oriented Video Genie III). The BASIC is compatible to the Video Genie I and II and the TRS-80, execpt for graphic and sound commands, some routines for Video Genie I BASIC commans where still left in the Colour Genie's BASIC ROM. Programms where provivided to load TRS-80 programms into the Colour Genie. Colour Genie disks could be read with TRS-80 floppy disks drives but not vice versa.

Unlike the earlier Video Genies, which were compatible with their main competitor (the Model I TRS-80), the Colour Genie is also incompatible with the rival TRS-80 Color Computer- one fundamental difference being the different CPUs.
