Your original comment about Seattle Computer triggered a vague recollection so I went looking through the material and found a Seattle Computers Glossy Brochure from Dec 1983 that advertises business grade S100 systems with the 8086 CPU and MS-DOS 2.0. If I can get Google to cooperate, I'll push scans up to Picasa and post the link.
