Asia Commercial Co. (ACC)., Ltd. (Hong Kong)

Asia Commercial Co. built computers for other companies to sell under their own brands. However, the company appears to have sold the ACC 8000 directly to consumers. It was on unusual system, with three different CPUs and able to run a wide range of software, including software for the Apple II. A unique feature is that the keypad is placed at an angle.

The ACC Louise was an IBM PC-compatible desktop that was also able to run CP/M thanks to a Z80 coprocessor. It featured a flip-top case, which made it easy to get to the system components, and an infrared keyboard. The Louise was offered as an OEM system, and it is not clear if ACC sold it under its own brand.
