Dynalogic Info-Tech, Bytec, Bytec-Comterm, Bytec/Dynalogic (Ottawa, Canada)

This company changed names more often than some people change socks. At least the Hyperion portable kept its name through it all. The system changed cosmetically during its production run; some have beige cases and others are gray with minor differences on the front panels. The Hyperion was one of the first luggable PC-compatible systems, and Bytec-Comterm was one of the first system vendors to endorse Microsoft Windows in 1983.
