Comart Advert - December 1984
From Personal Computer World
The Mighty Comart System Grows... form a Single Comart Workstation
Another entry in the IBM-alike panetheon, but from one of several companies of the time that started out as re-sellers or importers. Comart had been importing systems from companies like North Star and Cromemco since 1977 before moving in to the inevitable IBM clone market where pretty much every business machine was by this time in 1984. Other companies that trod a similar path include ACT, who had previously imported Chuck Peddle's Victor 9000 (as the Sirius 1) before releasing their Apricot range and Almarc, who had been the only UK reseller of Vector Graphics machines before basing their Series 8 on the Vector 4.
The advert does however feature a particularly nice 1980s office illustration as part of the complex 8-page gate-fold insert that was bound in to the magaine.
