Memotech Advert - May 1984
From Your Computer
The MTX Series described; straight from the horses mouth
An advert for the almost-but-not-quite MSX-standard MTX512 from Memotech of Witney in Oxfordshire (a company that had started out making memory and expansion cards for Sinclair's ZX81), consisting of mostly a bunch of quotes taken from electronics and computer magazines of the day. Well-reviewed in February 1984's "Win a Memotech" competition with quotes like "[the MTX] would not disgrace any executive's desk", the MTX could be fitted with something fairly unusual at the time - a 256K memory board that was intended not as program memory but as fast storage, or in their words a "Silicon Disc RAM board". The MTX, without its 256K "RAM disk" but with 2 5.25" standard floppy drives and CP/M retailed for £1,245 - about £4,100 in 2020 terms.
