Mitsubishi Electronics America Inc. (Compton, Calif.)

Mitsubishi sold few of its early systems in North America, but it built several popular PC-compatibles for U.S. vendors such as Sperry and Leading Edge.

The Multi16 was sold in North America, and featured a two-piece design. The monitor and drives were in the top unit, while the keyboard and main circuitry were in the bottom unit.
