Description

The ML-G3 is the adaptation of the ML-G30 Model 2 computer for the Spanish market, but limited to 64kB RAM and 1 disk drive by default (however, there's a location foreseen for the addition of a second disk drive). There is no external disk drive connector.

The separate keyboard has its own dedicated connector. As in Model 2 of ML-G30, there's a RS-232C interface with a switch at the back of the computer, but this time with its own BIOS.
