Fujitsu FM Towns II
The FM Towns II computer came in a few configurations, displayed here is the FM Towns II Laptop, which had a built in CD-ROM, a 3.5" disk drive and all the specifications of the FM Towns computer, but now ran on the Intel 80486DX2 CPU @ 66MHz.
A desktop version of the FM-Towns II with separate screen also exists.
The FM-Towns Architecture was, like the Sharp X68000 series, serious about graphics. The system had hardware sprites, and could display up to 1024 sprites on screen simultaneously, each sprite being 16x16 in 16 colors. There was 128KByte of memory reserved for sprites. Although advanced, the Sharp X68000 had even better sprite hardware for serious action gaming.
