Victor 9000/Sirius 1


The 9000 was quite innovative and superior in many points to the original IBM PC. It met a certain success in Europe (released in 1983 RRP £2754) as the IBM PC was not yet available there, whereas the Sirius S1 (European name of the Victor 9000) was. In the UK the later Apricot PC borrowed a lot from the S1. The mechanical keyboard is very complete and has its own 8035 CPU. The 12” monochrome monitor is equipped with an anti-reflection filter and can be adjusted horizontally and vertically. The two 5.25″ FDD are single-sided and offer 600KB each.
