Curator Notes

The Olivetti M20 was the company's entry into th epersonal computer market. Designed at Olivetti's Advanced Technology Center in Silicon Valley, it used a Zilog Z8000 microprocessor instead of the Intel 8088 used in the IBM PC. While technologically advanced, it also meant that it was incompatible with the IBM PC.
