It’s a special time when I score anything branded with the Commodore logo. For me – Commodore 64’s, Amiga’s and VIC 20’s were my youth, much more than anything made by Nintendo or Sega.
The Commodore 128 I received today, is something special. Not only is it a great machine, but the the condition is immaculate! Seriously, I’m half tempted to imagine that it’s hardly – if ever – been used. Machines in this type of condition, with the box and foam inserts so well preserved, are a rare find indeed. Take a moment to have a look through the pictures, and you’ll see what I mean.
What a score!
The Viatel Adaptor. Apparently you could book plane flights “Online” using this thing back in the day.
No pictures, no fluff – just pages and pages of learning BASIC 🙂
Old school BASIC manuals – including one from the Footscray Institute of Technology 🙂
I love the paraphernalia that came with this. 1986 tech magazine – awesome read.
Seal still intact – never used? Who knows…
Foam with the Commodore logo? That’s foam of win.
Power supply, RF cable – all of it in pristine condition
It seriously looks like it’s never been touched. Total bliss!
A nice surprise – a Viatel adaptor (an ancient modem-type device for dialling BBS)
Tape deck is in great condition, with manual etc.
The only thing better than a C128 is one that’s boxed – and with a datacasette!
