DigiBarn Systems: BCC Avanti 025 notebook
Thanks Steve Albert for this BCC Avanti 025 notebook. Steve tells us:
Back in the 70's thru the 90's I was a product designer in Palo Alto at a company called GVO. Durng this time we worked on the design of numerous computers of which I still have... a BCC Avanti 025 Notebook (Serial # 100798) This case was designed by John Amber who currently is on a sailboat off the coast of Panama.
Excerpt from BCC Avanti 486SLC by Bruce M. Bowden in COMPUTE! March 1993L
The Avanti 486SLC notebook computer from BCC is as aesthetically pleasing as it is powerful--and it's a powerful machine! It's built around the Cyrix 486SLC 25MHz, 32-bit microprocessor, with all the 486 features intact. On board are an 87SLC math coprocessor for those arithmetic-intensive chores, a high-speed cache controller (on-board cache memory is 1K), and an Advanced Power Management (APM) controller. It has a 2 1/2-inch hard drive, with a 19-ms average access time.
Most eye-catching about this notebook PC is its well-thought-out physical design. The soft-touch rubberized case is sleek and stream-lined--both stylish and professional. The contoured shape also makes the unit easy to carry. The 80-key layout is neatly arranged and inclined forward for comfort.
