Felix series[edit]

Felix PC [ro] was a Romanian IBM-PC compatible produced at ICE Felix in 1985–1990.

Felix C [ro] was a family of Romanian computers produced by ICE Felix from 1970 to 1978. They were similar to IBM/360; their operating system was SIRIS.

Felix M [ro] was a family of Romanian mini and microcomputers in 1975–1984.


CoBra [ro] was a Romanian personal computer produced at I.T.C.I Brașov, in 1986.
