Back in the mid-Eighties we had those at commercial academy! Together with monochrome monitors. And the monitors had two disk drives built-in  Cool

Together with monochrome monitors.

That's a pity: the P2000 is capable of displaying 8 different colors (!).  Smiley

Well, the computers were for bookkeeping lessons and teaching BASIC basics - so they probably didn't need any color  Grin

BTW Basics: seems to be the P2000T 16k Basic seems is not a Micro$oft product, at least no copyright text.
And even the error messages are in Dutch! And it has a Z80 so.. Maybe a C7420 with real Philips Basic  Smiley

At the back of the P2305 BASIC interpreter cartridge the sticker clearly says: "? by Microsoft, 1980"

Sold mine last year. I was selling of some of my 8 bit computers, because of storage space trouble. Also sold my laser 2001 and 2x comx35 systems. I have kept one tape, because i like different storage systems.

On one of the tapes I found something like that, in 'high resolution' teletext graphics  Cheesy

Found a video of it, it is called Lady/Lazy Bug

Amazing, looks like G7400/C7420 graphics, probably a similar teletext graphics chip?

Oh no, it is far less advanced: it is a SAA5050, used in the very earliest of TV sets.
It has no user definable graphics for example, just the 3x2 block graphics, 8 colors, blinking and double height and that is it.
For every attribute change you loose a character position on screen..
