The Lanier Model 103 Word Processor / Computer

The University of Delaware received a Lanier Model 103 Word Processor / Computer as a donation. As you can see it's in pretty bad shape, but it may be at least partially restorable. I have not done much with it, other than open it up for a visual inspection. There's an 8080 processor on the disk drive control board.

This system is owned by the University of Delaware, it's not mine to trade. Since the original post the system was cleaned up, but it's not fully restored. Thanks for the info.

This old system uses hard sector floppies in AES Data Format. 16 plus sector disk.

1) To make new system disk you need
their Copyit (Copyall) disk. This
disk self boots.

2) OS choices
AES office package or CP/M 80

I have noticed in your pitchures
that their no AES Gateway Card or Serial
port card. (The usefullness as is is not great.

Do you have the external pirority printer for it. If you do maybe whe
can make some kind of trad. Like
An older working IBM Pentium 60 running ADSL. Shipping will be costfull bougth ways. This unit needs a lot of hard to locate parts to bring back up th run.

Well thats all for now.

PS. you could try an sales email to
Edlin@TelusPlanet.Net he night buite at it. But most likely he would not (Incomplete unit)
