Apricot XEN-i 386/45
Codenamed Candyfloss, this computer was aimed to compete with the IBM PC-AT. It was a multipost system capable of controlling up to 16 stations.
The last Apricot computer not to be IBM compatible was the XEN (October 1985), a 286-based system intended to compete with the IBM AT and running Windows 1.0. It was superseded in 1986 by the XEN-i, the first in a line of IBM compatible systems. The Xen-i initially shipped with a 5.25" floppy drive to further improve its IBM compatible credentials. The 3.5" drive made a reappearance when IBM themselves switched formats with the release of the PS/2 range.
This model is Apricot Xen-i 386/45 and is complete with Keyboard, mouse and monitor and was kindly donated by Edward Gladstone.
