Albert Computers Inc. (Thousand Oaks, CA)

The Albert was unusual looking for an Apple IIe clone. It was a two-piece design with what the company called “stereo” styling. The company hedged its bets by offering a Z80 option for anyone wishing to use CP/M, and later sold multi-processor systems that could run AppleDOS, CP/M, or MS-DOS.
The company later developed other Albert models. The Albert Express appears similar to the original model. The Albert Executive and Alfred Professional Executive (Profex) offered more expansion options.

A portable version of the Profex was also available. It offered offered Z80 and 8088 coprocessor options for running CP/M and MS-DOS software, respectively. It could operate on batteries or AC power. The Albert Pup was a low-cost, entry-level model.
