Thanks. It appears I'm just a sentimental old fool
tseng labs ET6000 4MB for $50pp. great price for a 4MB version.
I snapped one up nice n quick. been after a reasonably priced one for a long time.
This looks alright for a DOS/Windows 3.x laptop.
$60 posted for a Toshiba 4010CDT. 266MHz PII, TFT screen, Yamaha OPL3-SA3 sound and Chips and Technologies 65555 VGA.
Annoyingly missing the HDD caddy and is proper filthy but looks like it could clean up okay. Bit of a project.
Yeh I've noticed the D model is super attractive for people, often twice or three times the price of the regular C128..
D model with origional box in good condition, thousands?
I have a 128DCR tucked away for a rainy day but I must admit that I'd only ever use the C64 part of its personality. The keyboard is nicer than my breadbin of course, and it has an inbuilt disk drive + PSU, but I prefer the old breadbin in every other way.
the only good looking 8 bit home computer is the 800XL, heh
Good point the keyboard would be nicer... The C64 bread bin nor modern isn't exactly nice to type at.
I'm just bitter, I would love to add one to my collection, I love basic and would love to code on something like that in Assembly or Basic. It seems like one of those platforms that never really got attention but could be quite neat. I just don't really understand the need for people to pay mega bucks.
I am quite a fan of the BBC micro look and of course the Amstrads, they looked like the evil version of the c64.
pfft, as if
BOOM Microbee FTW
I grew up with one of those (I wish we'd had a C64)
the colour games on the C64 were compelling, but the bee had its charms
I have both, a breadbin from release, and a c64c model. The c model is soooo much easier to live with and type on. That with a good wedge and your good to go.
$51 for a IIci.. Probably just needs a new battery.
My first ever case mod was chuck my pc into one of these. Nice lil boxes.
And a re-cap of the board - quite common for this era of Macs to have leaky caps, along with bad filter caps in the PSU.
Should really be recapping any of the 80's early 90's stuff really.
IICI is one of the faster 68030's, and can take all the II nubus expansions. I would have thought quite collectible. Case just looks like it needs a clean. Went for $125.. Pretty good deal. I don't really understand why old beat up classics and SE's go for that much.
Here's a nifty little AT mystery box with a 386, 486, and Pentium in it apparently (most likely a 386 based on the badge and MHz readout):
That's a pretty neat turbo switch if it can alternate between a 386, 486 and Pentium for the ultimate turbo boost.
Love this case. Horizontal with a horizontal 3.5 drive. A rarity and a joy to look at!
1884S instructions and schematic:
I love the fact that it's a locally built PC. Sadly there's not many Aussie built early PC's out there as they all seemed to have been turfed long ago.
Great to see this one has survived and hopefully finds a good home.
