Sperry Corp. (Blue Bell, Pa.)

The Sperry PC was manufactured by Mitsubishi in Japan and is the same system as the Leading Edge PC. One difference, however, is that Sperry provided better graphics and display options. Sperry sold its PC in a transportable configuration as well.  Sperry merged with Burroughs in 1986 to form Unisys Corp.
