Other than the redesigned motherboard, the Sorcerer II looks almost exactly the same original Sorcerer. While some of the later produced Sorcerer II's have dark keys instead of light, many Sorcerer II's were produced with light colored keys as well. The quickest way to tell the two systems apart is to look at the serial number on the bottom or by looking at the back of the system. On the Sorcerer I the text above the ports is smaller than on the Sorcerer II and the Sorcerer I has a toggle switch for the power instead of a rocker switch. Of course opening up the case and looking at the motherboard itself is the best way.
In addition to being sold by itself, the Sorcerer II was available in several different bundles directly from Exidy:
Exidy System 80 (DP 8000)
This was the the smallest bundle available from Exidy, but it packed a lot of power. It included a 48K Sorcerer, Display/Disk, and CP/M. It was priced at $4,490.
Exidy Small Business System 80/1 (DP 8100)
As the name implies, this package was geared towards
small businesses. It included a 48K Sorcerer,
Display/Disk, Dot Matrix Printer, Parallel Data Cable, Word
Processor ROM Pac, and CP/M. It was priced at $6,899.
Exidy Word Processing System 80/2 (DP 8200)
Similar to the Small Business System 80/1, this bundle included a high quality Daisy Wheel Printer instead of a Dot Matrix Printer. It was priced at $6,899.
