The Sharp X1 Twin was a Japanese PC
made by (who else?) Sharp
. Technical details
are sparse, but it definitely wasn't a 286
. With a nice black finish (and one of those neat twirly Mac
-like keyboard cords
), the X1 Twin was set vertically
, uncommon back then for a personal computer. And much like a C64
and its brethren, you could use it on your TV
The greatest part about the X1 Twin (and the only reason I'm writing this node) is that with a flick of a switch, you could play PC Engine (TG16) games. Just insert the game card and off you go. Sharp even made sure to include a gamepad.
And like any other really cool thing, Sharp made a limited number of them. When will people learn that consoles and computers don't mix?!
