In late 1980, NNC (No Name Computers) offered two S-100 based computer systems - the 80 and 80W.
Basic features of the
64kB RAM memory
Z-80A processor (4MHz)
two RS-232-C serial ports
three 8-bit parallel ports

two "Shugart 801" 8-inch floppy drives
is similar, with slightly different storage capability:
only one 8-inch floppy drive
added one "Shugart SA-1004" 10MB eight-inch hard drive
The basic Model 80 and Model 80W systems are single-user in operation but can be expanded with additional terminals and printers for up to six users.
CP/M was offered as the standard operating system, but for multiuser applications "OASIS" from Phase One Systems was available.
They are also very heavy - the Model 80W with it's large, heavy-duty components weighs 70 pounds.
