Hardware Description

Microprofessor III (MPF III), introduced in 1983, was Acer's (then known as Multitech) third branded computer product and also (arguably) one of the first Apple clones (an Apple IIe clone). Unlike the two earlier computers, its design was influenced by the IBM personal computer. Because of some additional functions in the ROM and different graphics routines, the MPF III was not totally compatible with the Apple IIe.
