We hate 2020!

Just when we thought 2020 couldn't get any worse! We were about to re-open after many months of being closed but then disaster struck when a mains water pipe burst and flooded much of the ground floor of the museum.
Sadly re-opening has now been postponed. Read More >>>

Apricot 4th Generation Executive Computer small foldable leaflet

small foldable leaflet
The original Apricot, touted as "the first 4th generation personal computer, had an odd configuration. Is it a portable or a desktop PC? The Apricot folds up and can be carried by a handle, and you could use the system without a CRT by relying on the two-line LCD on the keyboard. Practically speaking, the Apricot is more of a desktop unit. The Apricot Xi, a hard-disk drive version of the Apricot, followed a year later. Neither system was fully IBM PC compatible.

Date : June 1983

Creator : Apricot

This exhibit has a reference ID of CH28663. Please quote this reference ID in any communication with the Centre for Computing History.
