MUPID
Mupid 2

The Mupid was followed by the Mupid 2 which had a better keyboard, and which supported the CEPT Prestel standard instead of the national Austrian one. At their time, the Austrian post office even replaces Mupid 1 by Mupid 2s for free (I wonder what they did with all these returned Mupid 1 models).

There were 3 Mupid 2 models:
- C2D (German version of the square tin case with separate keyboard) According to some rumor, these models did not went into sales.
- C2D2 (German version of the compact case labelled "Komfort MUPID")
- C2A2 (Austrian version of the compact case)
- In addition there was a Mupid card for early PCs.

Apart from the floppy disc drive, there was one additional option for the Mupid 2.

The so-called "Permanent Memory" upgraded a normal Mupid 2 to a "Komfort Mupid" (it seems that all German C2D2 models were Komfort Mupids). This option consists of a battery-buffered 128 KB CMOS memory that costed an enormous 420 Euro (currently about 650$). This memory allowed either:
- to store and reload existing Prestel pages without additional costs
- to store BASIC programs or graphics without other external memory
- to be used as a RAM disc (this even allowed to run CP/M without a floppy disc)

I have one of these at home, it still works I guess and it would be a shame if I''d throw it away. Well... if someone needs it, give me an email.

That's a pretty mupid name for a computer if you ask me.
