Olympia USA Inc. (Somerville, N.J.)

The Olympia Boss was one of the sharper looking computers of 1981. It had a two-tone color scheme with a sloping front of the case and a separate but well-matched monitor.

The People computer was typical of the hybrid CP/M and MS-DOS systems introduced while the world was moving to PC compatibility.
