Among the refashioned CBM line of computers, the 8296 stands above many as the ultimate business micro. Based on the 8032 architecture, this computer features 128K of external expansion memory, and the "Execudesk": a ROM capable of launching an included suite of disk-based business applications.
  • When powered on, the 8296 displays the Execudesk menu  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.


This one is:

  • Model 8096-sk
  • 128K of RAM 
  • BASIC in ROM.
