After the Einstein was met with modest success, Tatung tried to enter the lucrative PC market, mainly aiming for the small business user. The CP/M based machine was designed to be easy to use, expandable, and relatively low priced, starting at £1950.

It had one or two 5.25” floppy disk drives. The hard disk controller could accommodate four 5.25” or 8” drives. Two serial boards could be used that added RS232 support, with terminal support built into the ROM. 
Up to eight virtual disk boards could be added, adding up to 256K storage each.
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.
