This machine came with a green-phosphor, slow-phosphor screen that's sharp
and rock steady. The screen tilts up and down and left and right for maximum
comfort. It has a silent keyboard with a large shift key next to the Z, the
return key is also large, and the cursor-movement keys are separate from the
numeric keypad. The disk drives are 5 1/4-inch and hold 640k each and are
expandable to 1200k each. 128k of user programmable memory is standard. It
sold for $4995 new. It had a 16-bit processor like the IBM and you could
buy a plug-in card that increased the memory by 64k for $600 that also had
the Z-80 microprocessor on it and allows you to run CP/M. This was called a
Victor-80 Card. The 9000 does excellent monochrome graphics but it will not
do color graphics. Hopes this info helps John Keep Computing !!!
