I just picked up one of these, I am going to get it back to its operational condition, however it needs new belts. Anyone know where i could source them? shoot me a message at elitespoon at gmail.

Yeah, 1.44MB DOES seems advanced for 1980. I had (and still have) a 80286 in 1989 with one but that was 1989, not 1980... maybe check that?

My dad was a survey statistician $ the data dept head for Booz Allen $ Hamilton in Philly. He forced them into the computer age during the 60''s $ 70''s. He brought one of these home (Blue/Grey) in 1978. He would telecommute to the Prime mainframe in their office and update his databases via the acoustic coupler. The CDI system in our house had no disk drive, but we had many, many, many microcassettes with all of our basic programs on them. I learned basic on this machine at the age of 7. I can''t tell you how valuable it was to be able to have this available at such a young age. If any of the developers, marketers, sellers of this system read this - thank you. While I am a Mechanical Engineer, I can tackle any programming issue i am faced with thanks to this little system.

Sounds like it would be an interesting little machine to use...

The article said that you could add a 1.44MB disk drive. Isn't that a bit advance for the 1980s. Can anyone confirm that.

This computer was based on the 6800 microprocessor. I had one and an assembler for it on micro cassette. There were two versions. The first was blue and gray and had the microcassette for memory, the second was tan and orange and had bubble memory for storage. The tan one did not have the switch bay across the front.
