The Hitachi Flora Prius was a range of personal computers marketed in Japan by Hitachi, Ltd. during the late 1990s.[1][2][3]

The Flora Prius was preinstalled with both Microsoft Windows 98 as well as BeOS. It did not, however, have a dual-boot option as Microsoft reminded Be of the terms of the Windows OEM license.[4] In effect, two thirds of the hard drive was hidden from the end-user, and a series of complicated manipulations was necessary to activate the BeOS partition.[5]


FLORA Prius 330J came in three models:

  • 330N40JB: Base version with no LCD Screen
  • 3304ST40JB: Included a 14.1-inch super TFT color LCD Display
  • 3304ST40JBT: Included a 14.1-inch super TFT color LCD Display and WinTV Video capture board
