There is so much more that could be said about Alpha Micro. We could have sections on their various software products (AlphaTCP, AlphaWRITE, AlphaCALC, etc...) and we could have models and so on along with what Alpha Micro is doing today (AMOS 8, TrueGUI and other cool stuff). And what about links to ZTERM and other supporting 3rd party software. (talk) 04:00, 1 November 2010 (UTC)

Could we have a list of various historical models, along with some basic specifications? I used to use an AM-1000 (I think) in high school. I still have an 8" floppy disk from that era. It would be fun to read about it. But I have no info in the platform. Wadsworth 00:01, 11 July 2006 (UTC)

The Hawk disk drive was not a Winchester disk: The heads did not take off and land from the disk surface but retracted completely, and accordingly the removable pack contained only the platter, not the platter and arm assembly. See [1] for a dissection of one; the heads are shown at around 5:50. Hieronymus Illinensis (talk) 11:54, 2 March 2016 (UTC)
