When powered on, the 8296 displays the Execudesk menu (see below), which features options
for loading the disk-based applications, shutting down the system,
or "exiting" to BASIC. When in BASIC mode, the 8296 is essentially the same
as an 8096, with, of course, the nicer case design
,sloped detachable keyboard, and swivel monitor. The 8296-D comes with a
built in 8250 disk drive, which is a dual 1024K DS/DD 5.25" floppy unit.
ROM: 24 Kilobytes
Personal Note: This machine was obtained from a German auction site. I enjoyed playing with it so much (since it looks just like an 8032sk), I wrote my archiver "emutil" on it.
