Err, the PERQ was originally designed/built by 3 Rivers Computer Corp
in the States. I think some parts of the 2T1 (the one with the 8"
Micropolis hard drive), in particular the hard disk interface board
and the portrait monitor (based on a Kent Modular Electronics chassis)
were from ICL, but the CPU, memory. EIO etc all come from the States.

Of course the AGW3300 is an ICLmachine  but I feel that's a PERQ in name only
