According to this magazine here next to me, yes. I need to dig out my copy
of 'Personal Computer News' that had the Tiger on the cover plus in-depth
review to be sure. Presumably you know the Tiger was a Tangerine design that
had been bought by H|H, a company still known for its guitar amplifier
units? Why H|H decided to try to break into the PC market is anyone's guess.
