The 1980’s were a time of emergence and meteoric rise of such class of computers as “home computers”. Despite the name, they were not intended for home use only. They were bought in large quantities for use in offices, schools, etc. The first model was launched in the end of 1981, while production of the latest version was completed in 1994.
