JEFF'S MISC NOTES
Misc. Stats & Notes:
- The following are in original boxes: Commodore 16, Plus/4,
VIC-20, Mattel Aquarius, Timex-Sinclair 1000, TI-99/4A (both), Tandy 1000HX, Aquarius datasette, Commodore 1530 cassette recorder, Commodore 1312 paddles, Atari 1030 modem, IBM PCjr joysticks, Fairchild Channel-F, Channel-F System II, Mattel
Intellivision, Mattel Intellivision Entertainment Computer System, Unisonic Tournament 2000, Apple Parallel card for the Apple ///, TRS-80 Color Computer 2, Apple Macintosh 128k (including seperate internal boxes for the keyboard, mouse and manual, including cardboard sleeves), TRS-80 Model 2000 serial expansion board, TRS-80 Model 2000 clock/mouse board, Atari XM301 modem, Macintosh numeric keypad, CardCo Cardboard/3S expansion system for the VIC-20, Atari 2600VCS, and the Magnavox Odyssey 400.
- The Apple ][+ has the shift-key mod installed between the keyboard and the game port
- The Atari 800 is a later version, with screws holding down the access cover, vice thumb latches. it has 1-32k RAM board and 1-16k RAM board, as well as the GTIA chip. The ROM board and the 16k RAM board are of the earlier variety, with the plastic covers over the circuit cards. The 32k RAM board is a third-party board, not Atari. It was used to allow the 800 to still have 48k RAM when using the Bit-3 video board.
- The Mega-ST has been upgraded with the TOS 1.04 ROMs. It's floppy drive was replaced with one taken from a 1040ST, so the LED color is amber vice green. It has a Mega-STE keyboard, as Mega-ST keyboards are very difficult to find, and the STE keyboard is generally considered to be the superior of the two.
- The IndusGT disk drives are in the original plastic carrying cases, with deviders and such, though there is only one set of the manuals and disks that came with them.
- Currently, this collection covers the following microprocessors: Zilog
Z-80, Harris 6120, MOS 6502, Intel 8080, 8086, 8088, 80186, 8085, 80c85, Motorola
6809, 68000, 68040, Signetics 2650, GI CP1600, TI TMS-9900, and the 6507. It
also includes such custom co-processors as 'Tom', 'Jerry', 'Mikey', 'Suzy',
'Antic', 'GTIA', 'Pokey', 'Paula', 'Denise', 'Lisa' and 'Agnus'. It should
be noted that the CP1600 and TMS-9900 are two early 16-bit chips from the
period when the 8-bit chips were king. According to the Intellivision FAQ,
the CP1600 was jointly developed in the early 70's by GI and Honeywell and
could address up to 64k of memory.
