Description

B&W image of Prime 200. Two of the large boards are shown on top of the computer. The front of the computer has switches, lights and a rotary selection switch.
Attached metadata: "The PRIME 200 incorporates several hardware design firsts. It is the first computer to use MOS semiconductor memory exclusively; the first computer to eliminate all wires within the mainframe through large-board packaging; the first computer to employ 100 percent microprogrammed logic. Each feature is intended to allow the PRIME 200 hardware to do its chief job -- develop and execute software with the greatest speed, efficiency and cost-effectiveness that technology allows.
