Pyrus - (sometimes called Pyrus- and sometimes stylized in all-caps) is the first 8-bit computer in the lineup, created by Pyrus Pyrifolia Calculators. The computer is based on the Apple I, released on 11 April 1976. The operating system it runs is based on Integer BASIC, a variant of BASIC for the Apple I and Apple II computers released in 1976.

To unlock this computer, the player has to either get 24 microchips or by purchasing it from the Pbay website with Progress Data.

According to the startup, the computer and system it runs were both created by Pyrus Pyrifolia Calculators in 1977.
