The Mindset Computer

In this video, The 8 Bit Guy demos The Mindset, which was going to be “the next big thing” back in the day, but it never happened. I had only heard about this rare beast. Cool to see the real item.


Fascinating. I recall reading about the Mindset back in the 80s but hadn’t seen it mentioned in many years. It’s an interesting example of why ‘kinda-sorta’ compatbility is worse than none at all, I don’t think any of the semi-PC compatibles ever achieved much success.

Looking at it, I do wonder if someone at Sharp stumbled across one of these somwhere as the Mindset and X68000 have a marked resemblance.
