Well of course you wouldn't see the Commodore Hyperion listed in the SWoC!
the SWoC page deals only with 8-bits (the C= 900 being the only exeption) &
intentionally excludes any C= PC clones (Which the C= Hyperion *might* be).
Anyway, I saw that computer listed the Canonical List of Commodore Products,
so it must exist. Besides, all I know is that it *looks* like the Dynalogic
Hyperion, I was only theorizing that it *could be* the same thing. As soon
as I find a site/picture of it, then I can figure out if it truly is a
Dynalogic Hyperion with a Commodore nameplate on it.
