The ABC 1600 was a personal computer from Luxor that was introduced in 1985. It was built around the Motorola 68008 processor, had 1 megabyte of memory and used the operating system ABCenix, a Unix-like system developed from DNIX.
The ABC 1600 used monochrome graphics with a display resolution of 1024 × 768 and the screen could be turned 90° while in use depending on whether the user desired to work in standing (portrait) or horizontal (landscape) format. The hard disk had a capacity of 13 MB and the 5.25-inch floppy disk drive stored 640 kB.
The ABC 1656 was a 1600 model with a hard disc capacity of 40 MByte or 80 MByte instead.
