Comment The Zilog mini computer... (Score 4, Insightful) 162

Must have been a Zilog System 8000. Probably a model 21, as that was dorm fridge sized. The 31 and 32 were the size of a full size refrigerator.

Ran a Z8000 series processor at 10 MHz, and had about 8MB (if you were lucky) RAM. The hard drives were about 40MB and had an SMD interface.

They ran ZEUS, which was Zilog's System III variant.

I loved ours.
