I'm looking through some old issue sof Your computer, and in the october '87
issue, the cover story is Olivetti's attempt at a home PC, the PC1.
Why someone would like to have an IBM compatible at home is beyond me, but
look at the design! It's difficult to describe, but very 80s, very Italian.
Extremely compact, CPU and keyboard integrated into a home micro-ish console,
with 3,5" drives protruding from the top of the keyboard. Runs on a NEC V40
and has got a CGA adapter. Apparently the sound is "hi-fi".
But look at the design! Drool.

Was this radical design ever released, though? Has anyone got a PC1?
