Introduction

The 5560 was introduced as a high-end variant of the 5550. All models use the i80286 CPU and come standard with a hard disk. The CPU clock has been raised from 8 MHz to 10 MHz for the M/P models.

The price of the 5560 was quite high. The machines disappeared shortly after the MCA-based PS/55 5550 was introduced (a high-end desktop model with i80486 CPU).

Memory

In KDOS, the memory above 1 MB can be used only as a RAM disk.
In OS/2, all memory can be used for programs.

Floppy Drives

Diskette drives cannot be added.
Later, an external 3.5-inch drive for media conversion could be added.

Kanji Characters

Early models don't come with a Kanji ROM as standard equipment. For these models, Kanji fonts are loaded from software if the optional Kanji font card isn't installed.
