Tatung TPC-2000

After the Einstein was met with modest success, Tatung tried to enter the lucrative PC market, mainly aiming for the small business user.

The machine was CP/M based, which aimed for ease of use, a relatively low price and expandability.

The machine had one 5.25 drive, or two, with price starting at £1950, two serial boards could be used, that added RS232 support, as well as two I/O boards, with the virtual disk board could add capacity for 256K, and the main board could take eight of those.

The hard disk card could accommodate 4 5.25 or 8 inch drives.

As with the Einstein, the machines were built well, but could not compete in the market, and now very few appear to survive. 


Our machine was donated with the kind generosity of Bill Bolton
