Zenith Drives For Its New Machine

Additional storage for the Zenith Z-100 system (Pro-Tested in next week's PCN) is now available from Zenith in the form of half-height disk drives.

The drives will give you 1Mb per diskette and they come in single and double drive units. The 8" disks are double-sided, double density and the single drive version can be upgraded to the dual on the spot.

Zenith's supplier is Shugart, so the disks should be reliable as well as offering a controller that will recognise the standard formats used by IBM, S100 systems, and CP/M-based micros.

The single drive model, the Z207-41, will cost £1,094, and the dual drive Z207-42 is £1,727.
