The system is powered by an Intel 8085 microprocessor and offers 64 KB RAM. The whole thing was apparently delivered with an extended Basic language, which has DOS commands built-in to control the disk drives. 

Options advertised were: 
- CP/M, Cobol, Fortran, Basic compiler languages
- 10 MB hard disk
- wordprocessor software
- multi-terminals
- multi-tasking


The PCC 2000 was originaly called the MITS 300/15 and renamed to reflect the Pertec brand. This machine replaced the MITS Altair S-100 computers.
