Advanced Digital's SUPER STAR
This computer was based on the S-100 bus and was powered by the CP/M operating system. Instead of a floppy drive, it had a 5mb removable cartridge. It had six motherboard slots and room for up to 4 SUPER SLAVE processor boards, making it very easy to expand. There was also support for TurboDOS.
Here is a little info about Advanced Digital from one of their brochures:
Advanced Digital Corporation introduced the world's first single board S-100 microcomputer in 1980. Since then, the product line has expanded and undergone major enhancements and technological advancements. As a major supplier of board-level products to the S-100 microcomputer marketplace, Advanced Digital discovered the need for a system that: 1) would take advantage of the latest state-of-the-art technology; 2) would provide the user with adequate expansion capabilities; and 3) would be supported by a readily-available service capability.
Advanced Digital decided to fill this void by developing a family of S-100 microcomputers that would respond to the needs of the market. The transition from boards to systems was a natural extension of Advanced Digital's expertise and led to the introduction of the first system to incorporate a single board computer in 1981.
