@cp/m user, I did not recognise the compucolor in your photograph (you can tell it is 36 yrs old by the 8-track cartridge player used for loading software) :laugh: , MacDeath's was more like the machine I remembered, but I have to say they really did put too many colours on the keyboard.

Apparantely 8-track cartridge players did exist in 1975 according to these guys and if you wanted a Compucolor in 1977 they were like $2750 - and I'm guessing that was for a 8001 model, the 8051 was the same only with a larger 19 inch monitor, the one pictured in MacDeath's post is its successor the Compucolor II which came out in 1977, which I think looks horrid compared to the colour scheme on the original machines!

The Enterprise 64 (got one! got one!) is and looks fantastic. And I also happen to like the joystick - for someone like me, who preferred keys over joysticks, it would have been a decent replacement for the times one was required.

Also the SAM Coupe' is real cute (got one, love it to bits)...

Pretty darn expensive, both of them... don't know what I was thinking.
