Tangerine Microtan 65


Microtan's History

Microtan 65The Tangerine Microtan 65 was first sold in 1979.  Unlike other systems available at the time, it was designed with expandability in mind.  Based on the 6502 processor, the basic system could be expanded from 1k RAM, 1k ROM and 32x16 text only display to a full blown system with 48k RAM, banked EPROM, tape and disk interface, hi-resolution graphics, 6 channel sound, and more!

Here, you can find out about the Microtan's history and development, read magazine articles and documentation and even use a Microtan 65 with a full featured emulator.
