I presume the unorthadox 1 was added for the built in floppy drive?

This is all news to me, I'm amazed to find a machine i never knew about from commodore, but I will keep an eye out for you!

Ive been reading up, they were never publically released? Apparently no more than 2000 in circulation too, less than 300 of which are supposidly accounted for.

Some say these things are the missing link between the amiga and the C64 due to their design and layout. And the motherboards bare striking resemblance to the A500s.

No wonder you're after one though hehe. Must be the holy grail of a commodore collectors desire.

I've got a case, and motherboard lacking the 2 main chips in storage, I'll get it out this week and take a few pics.

(I bought 2 of them off ebay.... about 15 years ago. :roll:)

(The other one is complete except for the 2 custom chips).

Later,
dabone

When Commodore was liquidated they were sold off, for roughly 100€
If I had known that (and wasn't 9 at that time) I'd have stocked up ... considering they've risen 5000% in price.
