|A Brief History of the X1|
The X1 has colour capability, and can run BASIC or CP/M, using either 3 disk drives ( as on the Amstrad 8256 ) or standard 5.25drives. We have CP/M 2.2 for the X1 and it looks pretty normal; but at the moment we do not have the BASIC, or any other software.
The development ofthe X1 range took place over several years ( see development graph below ); the later models were called X1 TURBO, and we have a brochure IN ENGLISH for these, which shows that the big new feature was a built-in Telopper ( see ** )
* * A Telopper is a device for transferring images between the computer screen and another video device, such as a VCR.
