Data General Desktop Generation

The Data General Desktop Generation Model was announced in 1983 in an effort to blunt the effect of the "microcomputer revolution" on Data General's proprietary systems' sales. Most models were based on a 16-bit microEclipse processor contained in a small, modular, consumer-oriented form factor that ran DG operating systems and software. One version was based on an Intel 8086 co-processor that could run MS-DOS software.

We will get more details on this one soon.
