The Mico was an ARM7500 based computer similar to the Acorn A7500+ and the RiscStation R7500.

The MicroDigital Mico has a 56MHz ARM7500FE CPU, 16MB RAM and a 6.4GB Hard disc. It had 1 parallel and 2 serial ports, joystick/MIDI port, sound sampler ports and 3 internal Microbus and 2 ISA expansion slots. It could optionally be fitted with a CD-ROM and an internal modem. A "Lightning" graphics card could be fitted to give 1600x1200 in 24 million colours. It ran a version of RISC OS 4.03 configured for the Mico. The Mico was available in desktop or mini-tower configuration.

The Microdigital Mico was designed in the post-Acorn world and launched in 1999. It was based on the ARM 7500 chip and a Microdigital designed motherboard. It is very similar to the RiscStation R7500 (apart from the motherboard).

This example in our collection is part of the Chris Whytehead collection. Chris Whytehead purchased it from APDL in June 2004. It was a special offer, ex-demo, system.
