Hyperion Computer

In early 1983, Dynalogic, a Canadian computer manufacturer in the Ottawa area introduced the Hyperion, a superbly designed and built portable computer for its time. One only has to compare it to the Compaq Portable which appeared shortly afterwards to appreciate how advanced it was.

The Hyperion used an Intel 8088 chip, and ran PC-DOS 1.25H, an early version which used a C: ramdrive. It was fitted with 2 360K 5.25 inch floppy drives. The Hyperion came with a suite of programmes - word processor, communications and data base. It is significantly lighter and easier to carry than the Compaq.
