The Sorcerer is an early home computer released by the video Game Company Exidy. First released in 1978 it had a zilog z80 processor and quite good expandable programmes including Microsoft 8k Basic. Compared to its competitors the Commodore PET and TRS-80 the Sorcerer was quite an advanced machine. However reputedly due to a number of problems including poor advertising (and probably the surge of other new competitors in the market) the Sorcerer was discontinued in 1980.
It remains a desirable machine for collectors and is also interesting because instead of incorporating floppy disks it chose instead to use an 8-track case design to load the programmes on the side..
