Canon USA introduces IBM PC-compatible

Library Systems Newsletter [August 1986]


Canon USA has introduced a new IBM PC-compatible with its A-200I1 Series, available in both floppy and hard disk models. The A-20011 Floppy Disk Model includes a monochrome CRT, 256KB standard memory, two 5 1/4-inch floppy disk drives with 360KB each, Centronics-type parallel interface, serial data interface, six expansion slots, and a standard PC-compatible keyboard. The A-200II Hard Disk Model includes the same specifications, but will have a 5 1/4-inch floppy disk drive with 360KB and one 2OMB hard disk drive. Other features include an 8086 16-bit microprocessor with a choice of cpu process clock rates (standard 4.77MHZ for normal usage, or 7.16MHz for higher speed dp work). The dual clock will make the processor considerably faster than the IBM-PC. Both models have 256 KB capacity, expandable to 640KB. Also available are two keyboards (one standard and one designed for word processing) and color or monochrome monitors. A mouse can be connected directly to either the keyboard without an extra card. The A-20011 has six expansion slots, three of which are 8-bit 16-bit data bus types. The prices for the Floppy Disk model is $1,995, while the Hard Disk model is $3,995.
