Amdek Corp. (San Jose, Calif.)

Amdek claimed to be the first company to offer a video monitor for personal computers in 1978. It built on that milestone to become one of the premier brands for not only monitors, but floppy disk storage, CD-ROM drives, and printers throughout the 1980s.

The company did not produce any computers until 1987 when it launched five PC compatibles that included 8088-, 80286-, and 80386-based systems.
