The 16 parallel bi-directional I/O lines are connected to an IBM compatible printer port (LPT1) and can also be used for high speed communication with a PC or for robotics applications.

Aside from the existing ZX81 screen text and graphics, the ZX97 offers a full 128 upper and lowercase text characters and unlimited user defined graphics (UDG) And finally, the ZX97 supports both pseudo hires and true bitmapped graphics (192x256) programs.
