  • circa 1984 plus/4


    The TED chip based plus/4. This was a unique machine, as commodore had big plans that kinda fizzled; the 264 and the 364 (a version of the 264 with speech). The 264 was to be custom to the customers desire -- software builtin, chosen by the customer. Kind of a cool idea, especially when hard drives from commodore were pricy and required an IEEE-488 interface. The plus/4 may have well been called the Limping Phoenix as it was not quite the machine planned and the 364 was canned. This puppy sports a word processor, spreadsheet daisywheel graphing program and an imaginary 4th program (one would assume the BASIC programming language). The software is rather cruddy -- not crude -- cruddy. I hate embedded codes in WPs and this one has plenty. It is not easy, but if you have the manual next to you, you can really do some things with this puppy.
