Neoware CA2 - PC DOS SWOS machine!
« on: 24 September 2017, 12:09:40 »
Hey everybody,

some of you have witnessed the Neoware machines on Sensible Days 2016 & 2017.
By now, I have improved them again. Here is a complete introduction to the CA2 model.

PC DOS SWOS 96/97 runs perfectly (spot on!) on those machines. They are small, light (approx. 2.9kg), and easy to handle.
All you need is a PS2 keyboard & mouse, and of course some VGA monitor.

It has onboard-Soundblaster (only needed if you use an ISA Gamecard instead of a soundcard), and ROLAND midi sound which is fantastic and sounds very polished!
Check out the video and the pictures.

Also, it is more advanced and reliable than its cousin EON NEOWARE. Unlike the EON, the CA2 can handle PCi/ISA soundcards, more RAM and bigger hard drives. In short, they are just better.
