The 1000/A900 and 9000/500 Series computers were so fast, they were bound by special US government export restrictions. Automatic export approval was given for only 16 countries. Export to any other country required an individual license.
The 9040 was obsoleted in August of 1985, having been replaced by the 9050.
The single 540 held at the museum as of 2013 was not functioning due to a defective power supply. The system control board also had corrosion damage from battery leakage.^ TOP
