GE Workmaster System (Fanuc)


Donors: Dennis Huntsman and the Idaho Falls Salvation Army
Location: Williamsburg, VA


Ooo! A GE Workmaster System! Pretty heavy-duty name for an IBM XT clone. It's pretty nice, with a good keyboard, nice sharp amber monitor, 640k, and dual 3 inch floppies. The floppies have hinged doors covering and protecting them. The keyboard can either be flipped down, yet still attached at the bottom, or can be removed entirely. The back looks like the back of a Big Blue machine, only with a GE nameplate and an extra connector for controlling industrial machines. It's protected by a neat hinged cover. Without a boot floppy, it boots into BASIC. All in all, a very nice little system, if a trifle heavy.
