<I am interested in purchasing the North Star Horizon. I am not local

<monitor, and condition (working/nonworking).


It interests me why some one wants a particular machine especially since
you do not seem to know much about it.


NS* were setup with 16-62k of ram. There were three common OSs run on
them NS*dos(nothing like PC dos), CP/M-80, there was also UCSD pascal
P-system. I believe NS*dos reached at least V5.4. They didn't not use
a monitor or keyboard as a terminal was commonly used.
