have been watching this.. i have never seen one of these,


i wonder how rare is it ?? this should be in a retro museum


its at £2k now with another day to go ..
that's about  £1950 above my budget
i would like to see good pictures of the upper and lower boards
i notice that there is no serial number. and the rated power requirement is 1.5amps
the keyboard seems to be the same as the other PCB early models


if the second board is to substitute the gate array.. if that uses standard parts maybe it could be replicated in a smaller package ?
