Decmate II

I have three Decmate II computers. These were also known as PC278, and were introduced in part to compete with the IBM PC.

I don't really know what the problem is, but I can't seem to get the cover back on.

These use a VR201 display and an LK201 keyboard. They have a funky 5.25" floppy drive, with the second floppy inserted upside down. Like the other Decmates, they are based on the Harris 6120 single chip PDP-8.

I also have a couple more, one of which has the hard disk option:

My other two PC278.
