Электроника БК 0010-01

The Elektronika BK 0010-01 is a Soviet-made home computer from 1986.

It's based on a 16-bit PDP-11-compatible processor (К1801ВМ1) running at 3MHz and has 32kB of RAM, half of which is used for graphics (512x256 in monochrome mode or 256x256 in 4-color mode).

The programming language that the computer starts into is Vilnius BASIC (more information on the Russian Wikipedia site here), which is a slightly simplified dialect of MSX BASIC. It compiles code before running it, which makes the programs run a bit faster than on other BASIC implementations that were popular on contemporary home computers.

Apart from BASIC, it's also possible to write programs in PDP-11 assembly or machine code.
