Hardware Description

Microprofessor II (MPF II), introduced in 1982, was Acer's (then known as Multitech) second branded computer product and also one of the earliest Apple clones. It does not look like most other computers. The case of the MPF II was a slab with a small chiclet keyboard on its lower part. In 1983, the Multiprofessor II retailed in the UK for £269.00 including VAT. One key feature of the MPF II was its Chinese BASIC, a version of Chinese-localized BASIC based on Applesoft BASIC. There was also a version sold in Europe that did not have Chinese localization.
