Olivetti Prodest PC1 HD

This is an XT clone, Its specification is similar to the Amstrad PC20 (aka Sinclair PC200) or Schneider Euro PC:

System unit contains motherboard, keyboard, power supply and floppy drives.

This is the higher spec model with 2 HD 1.44 MB Floppy Drives, 640k RAM

The computer was sold in Dixons and was seen as a competitor to machines such as the Amstrad PC1512.

There was no room inside the case for card expansion, so a box had to be attached to the side, which could house two 8 bit ISA, and a hard disk connector, it also had 128K of RAM.

The machine runs under DOS 3.2
