The Apricot F2 was a business machine marketed by Apricot in 1985. It was similar in specification to the F10 but shipped with two floppy drives instead of a floppy/hard drive combination.
Compared to its' predecessor, the F1, it included an extra expansion slot, more memory and larger storage capacity. Like the F1, the F2 and F10 had an infra-red interface for the keyboard and the mouse/trackball (the same infra-red mouseball pointing device used with the Apricot Portable).
The F2 and the F10 use an Apricot-modified version of MS-DOS, so they were not 100% IBM compatible. They were provided with a nice graphical and iconized interface called Activity. Integrated were a desktop, and software including a wordprocessor, communication, painting and Basic. They were also sold with GEM Write, GEM Paint and the GEM desktop.
