compatibles. the best software. inch, no glare screen that tilts at a touch. THE BEST MICROCHIPS. What is perhaps most impressive about the TeleVideo IBM PC Compatible can be found deep within its circuitry. We use the same 8088 central processing unit that runs an IBM PC. Butwe also employ new VLSI (Very Large Scale Integration) microchips that are designed and built exclu sively for TeleVideo.These inter face more efficiently with the powerful 8088 and yield numer ous benefits. For example, our tiny custom chips do the work of many of the larger, more expensive circuit boards in an IBM PC. So we can offer a computer system that comes in one at tractive, integrated case, is ready to run and occupies less desk space. A computer that edges out IBM's added-cost component system for reliability, ease of service and purchase simplicity. Fewer circuit boards to cool also allowed us to eliminate the noisy, irritating fan IBM and most other PCs force you to put up with. And TeleVideo compatibles accept any IBM hardware options with out modification. THE BEST LINE. But the Tele-PC is only one element of the TeleVideo IBM THE BEST PORTABLE FOR THE BEST PRICE. Features TPC II COMPAQ High Capacity Storage YES NO 2nd,Disk Drive YES OPTIONAL Quiet Operation (No Fan) YES NO Ergonomic Display YES NO Communication Port YES OPTIONAL International Power Supply YES NO MSM-DOS 2.11 YES NO Graphics Display YES YES Typical System Price $2995 $3710 PC Compatible line. The TeleVideo XT is the best hard ware for users of popular IBM XT software who would appreciate an extra 10 megabytes of storage capacity along with the advan tages listed on the preceding chart. As the chart above demonstrates, our portable IBM compatible computer, theTPC II, is far and away better hardware than COMPAQ Better hardware standard - at a better price. THE BEST MANUFACTURER. The TeleVideo IBM PC Compati El,.. ble line is made by the world leader in multi-user computer systems and the number one independent manufacturer of terminals. Our compatibles are available at participating ComputerLand and Entre (call 800-H I-ENTRE) dealers or you may call 800-538 -8725 for the dealer nearest you. In California, call 800-345-8008 . Before you invest, make a few simple comparisons. You'll find that TeleVideo-not IBM or COMPAQ-has the best hardware for the best software. At the best price. *Source: PC World, April1984 IBM is a registered trademark of International Business Machines. MS is a trademark of MicroSoft Corporation.
