Fingers Crossed for 2021 ...

2020 was the worst! COVID kept the museum closed for much of the year and a mains water pipe bursting causing a flood kept us closed for the rest. 
We're hoping to re-open in the next few months ... fingers crossed! Read More >>>

Olivetti M-15 Plus

The M15 had a Ni Cad battery 512K of RAM, and has a detachable keyboard, the screen is green, 640x480 in resolution, but with no back light. The top half also contains a large speaker, and two dials for contrast and volume, and the on off switch.

The Floppy on the righthand side is a 3.5"(no idea of capacity), and there's room for another on the lefthand side, too.
In addition, there's a D37 connector for an external Floppy at the rear. There's also a Printer and D25 serial port, and a switch marked 'HDU' on the rear.

There are two 3.5'' drives, one on each side, one has a pull down flap covering it.

Our machine boots, and passes the diagnostic test, before being unable to find the HDU, then requiring a system disk to continue.
