TRS-80 Model II, 12, 16 & 6000 Information Links

These machines were all pretty much "business" computers, more than anything else. The main difference between them and the others was in the use of 8 inch disk drives. The Model 2 was a Z-80 based machine, while the 16/6000 used a combination of the Z-80 and Motorola 68000. The Z-80 served as the disk I/O processor, and ran the machine when it was booted in Model 2 mode.
