The Corona Data Systems portable is a bit historic in that they copied
the IBM PC BIOS without license from IBM and got sued out of existence.
If anyone wants this then please contact the owner directly.

I have a Corona Data System PPC 22 portable computer about the size of a
small suitcase with a built-in 9" monitor [like an Osborn with a slightly
larger screen]. If you folks would like to have it, I will send it. I may
be able to dredge up an owner's guide or the like, if you think it would be
worth the effort.

I haven't had the heart to discard it; it had the most readable display I
have ever had for word processing. I used Multimate, of course, to go with
the Wang system at work. If you wish, I'll grub around for the program
floppies for Multimate.

Let me know at your convenience what to send and where. My wife will be so
