Philips Advert - 12th January 1985
From Personal Computer News
Get things going - with the Philips portable P2000 C
The spec of this machine makes it seem almost like an update to 1984's KayPro, with a similar 9" green-screen monitor and 5¼" floppies - in this version capable of storing up to640K. The machine ran two Z80A processors (one of which was just for I/O). The machine retailed at £995 (£3,590 in 2023) for the entry-level P2010 8-bit model with two 160K floppies, up to £1,990 (£7,180) for the top-end model with 8088 co-processor for 16-bit action, 352K RAM and a 640K floppy. This advert popped up in (so far) a single issue of Personal Computer News and seems to have been a blip - maybe Philips just weren't that in to advertising.
