O > ORIC > STRATOS / IQ 164   


The Oric Stratos was planned to replace the Oric Atmos. It was quite close to the Atmos but had some clever enhancements like a built-in floppy disk controller.

This computer was never marketed but when Euréka purchased Oric, the Stratos project inspired a lot the Telestrat computer.

Please consider donating your old computer / videogame system to or one of our partners from anywhere in the world (Europe, America, Asia, etc.).


According to issue 10 of Big K magazine (January 1985), it was announced that the Stratos would not come with a built-in BASIC - like the Telestrat that was based on it. So maybe this needs correcting in the information.
