Hi! I'm a fan of the 8-Bit guy, not much to say about me really.

I'm here mostly because I came into possession of an Actrix computer recently and couldn't find much info about the computer online. I thought this might be a good place to ask for info about this enigmatic all-in-one!

I haven't dared turn it on to see if it works, but I suspect it does (or will with some changed capacitors) since it's probably been sitting in it's beefy shipping case for the past few decades.

Wow, that's quite a beast of a computer. Having a built in printer and a modem might have made it appeal to some journalists, however the shear weight of the machine, along with the expense, it seems to me, must have discouraged most people. It's easy to see how the TRS-80 Model 100 made such a big splash with journalists, with this kind of competition.
