Corona PC, last chance.

The Corona PC was not cased in a wooden box, but rather a metal case
although it might have been a specially built case. I'm not sure how long
the Corona name was kept before it was changed to Cordata, but the name was
changed because of an objection by Smith-Corona. It had IIRC 512K of memory
and used either the 8080 or the V20 chip. The original PC-400 I have or had
(???) used the NEC V20 which was supposed to be about 5% faster (depending
on what benchmark you wanted to use.) Personally, I think it is worth saving
but I already have several and don't need another one :)!
