Well I know of at least 1 other CPM machine that used 3.5" disks.
We used the Sony CPM machines as a front end for an interactive video disk
system a zillion years ago.
With the 64k RAM, Sony's Basic with Video Disk extensions, we had about 28k
left for a program.
Worked great. We "knocked their socks off" when we finally got it all
