General Information

The Original Apricot that started it all for the up and coming Scottish Computer Manufacturer. The Apricot is an unusual IBM compatable using the same chipset as the VICTOR by Chuck Peddle.



Very unusual machine. Most MS-DOS machines designate A: and B: as floppy drives. Not this machine. A: is the Hard Disk, and B: is the disk drive. Very weird. This machine seems to run a customised MS-DOS 1.1.
