Seequa Chameleon

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The Seequa Chameleon was an early 1980s luggable personal computer; it was capable of running both the DOS and CP/M operating systems. It did so by having both Zilog Z80 and Intel 8088 microprocessors.[1][2][3][4][5]

While it ran MS-DOS and approximated the hardware capabilities of the IBM PC, it was highly PC compatible, being able to run such programs as Flight Simulator but was not a huge success in the market.

Seequa Computer Corporation was based in Annapolis, Maryland.[6] It was founded by David Gardner (President) and Dave Egli (CEO), one of David's business professors at the University of Maryland. Seequa competed against the early "transportable" computers from Compaq.
