Alphatronic news

So I have finally found a disk drive for my Royal / Triumph-Adler Alphatronic PC. Got it for a decent price and it is supposed to be working fine. More updates once I receive it.

Also on the Alphatronic front, I found an interesting site from the UK with some good info and pics, and an old forum entry that describes the purpose of the internal dip switches:

1 2 3
ON ON ON International
OFF ON ON German
ON OFF ON USA
OFF OFF ON French
ON ON OFF English
OFF ON OFF Italian
ON OFF OFF Spain
OFF OFF OFF reserved

4
OFF Serial printer
ON Parallel Printer

5
OFF NTSC
ON PAL

I am still looking for any disk image for this system. Now that I have the disk drive I can at least try out CP/M programs and see if those work.

Alphatronic PC

I had the Alphatronic PC in my collection for a while but just got around posting the page now. This is an interesting machine but I really need more info about it – anything from where to download software, how to make a cassette cable or maybe find a disk drive…

I took a bunch of pictures of the machine and posted here. Enjoy!
