Wyse Technology WY-700

InfoWorld reports on November 11, 1985, that terminal maker Wyse is entering the PC market with the WY-700, a monitor and graphics board subset that can display 1280×800 on a white-phosphor screen. In standard text mode, characters are 16×32 pixels, the maximum text resolution is 50 lines of 160 characters. The WY-700 is fully compatible with CGA, color programs are displayed as four grayscales. The price is a very low $1,595. In comparison, the Quadram Quadscreen costs $400 more, but its resolution is only 968×512, and it does not support standard IBM software.
