The Apricot was an Apple II Plus clone/workalike, no?

Hi Gene

Apricot computers were popular here in the UK, but eventually disappeared as there were not IBM PC compatible, which was the foundation for those that now run windows.

Check out:-

I do not think they could be described as Apple clones.

Many users loved them, particularly as they had hardware features not available elsewhere.

Regards - Mike
