An upgraded computer system from Microbee, which had 256 kb of RAM and twin 3.5 inch disk drives.

Several hundred thousand Microbees were made in the 1980s and sold to users all over Australia and overseas. It was one of the first computers to make big inroads into Australian schools and many Australian computer 'nerds' cut their teeth on a Microbee. About this time, the early Apples, TRS80s, and Commodore 64s were becoming popular. They were small, relatively cheap and offered home computing to the interested. Applied Technology introduced the Microbee as a kit that arrived in a plastic bag as a circuit board and lots of components. Later versions were sold in cases ready made.
