For Sale: NorthStar Advantage, appears complete in original packaging sold "AS IS". $100

This is a early all-in-one CP/M computer using the Z80 CPU and has graphics capability.

Due to the large size and weight of this computer box it must be picked up in person. No shipping.

From the above site: "Later (1982), company came out with an "All in one" system called the NorthStar Advantage. It was well accepted particularly in the academic community. Based on the Zilog Z-80 4Mhz processor, it had 64K of RAM and originally came with two 360K floppy disks. However the cost was high ($4000). The second floppy was later replaced with a 5 Megabyte Winchester hard disk drive. Hard disks were ultimately offered in a 30 megabyte size. The North Star Advantage ran both NorthStar DOS and BASIC as well as CP/M applications. The latter came about initially when a separate group called Lifeboat Associates ported CP/M on to their system. For a time this provided a boost to the unique hard sectored disk system."
