Data General One Model 2 (1984)

So i just wanted to share this old piece of ancient history. (More like a paperweight now)..haha. I got this from my roomate, and i have gotten it to start up. It requires a Dos disk to boot up, and i haven’t seen one of those in years. I can boot it up to a menu, but that’s about it. I have been looking into creating a set of Floppix disks to boot into a unix command line. Other than that, i really dont know what i could use it for. It just sits in my room, collecting dust..haha

Anyway, here are the specs, and a picture of this dinosaur.

CPU: 80C88 – 4 Mhz

So yeah…haha this thing is ancient.


Hope you enjoyed this!
