LSI Advert - February 1982
From Personal Computer World
"The new micro from LSI - Putting Britain back in front"
Another random entry in the "who?" category, from a paid-up flag-flying British computer company (which claims in the advert to be Britain's leading micro-computer manufacturer). It's for a Zilog Z-80-based micro with 64K, together with an integral display and floppy drives. The company also appears to have been supported by the Department for Industry, which probably explains its vanishing without trace and why where there seems to be nothing about it on Wikipedia or Google
LSI's M4 micro, available in the following year, was used as the basis for a specialist insurance broker software package, released by Loxton Computers. For a not-insubstantial £8,000 (£27,500 in 2020), you could get a printer, a mailmerge system (which would work with Wordstar) and five days' training.
