NEC PC-9801 VM
This personal computer from NEC Corporation was released in Japan in 1985. Like other machines in the PC98 range, it was not entirely compatible with the IBM Personal Computer despite using a similar processor. The BIOS, I/O ports, and graphic system are all very different from the IBM computer. Despite this, it could still run specially modified version of DOS and Windows. In Japan the PC98 computers were extremely popular, with thousands of software titles released - many of them games, despite it being originally positioned as a business system.
CPU: NEC V30 10 MHz
Two Japanese-language manuals were included with this computer when donated to the Centre. The manuals relate to the software packages 'Technomate' and the word processor Ichitaro. A PDF is available on request.
