Hardware Description

The PC2086 is an XT type machine from 1988 that was intended to be a replacement for the earlier PC1512 and PC1640. Released at the same time were the PC2286 and PC2386 which had 80286 and 80386 processors respectively and all aimed at the business market but the rumour goes that due to problems with MS-DOS 4.0 they got a bad name. Essentially the PC2086 is an XT PC that has VGA video, a 720K 3.5" floppy drive and an optional 30MB RLL hard drive.
