Cover pic! What better? After all this time, I still haven't had a chance to mess with this much. Got a power supply but no startup. Back to the back burner for it (April 09, it's been over three years).
I have yet to be able to make this work. Most like it needs a new external power supply, but not sure. It's since closeted, waiting my attention.
I still need stuff for this machine, a monitor and a power supply. I'd rather get both at once, so if any of you folks would liek to deal, please email me. /edit foudn a power supply for it, but either it or the computer don't work. Further testing is needed, and a known-good power supply.
Teal'c on the left, Bee Bee on the right. Bee Bee went to a good home, Teal'c still is with us. Our little Jaffa.
NONE of the ports line up. This was somebody's homebuilt machine. If you look close, you can see on the left what ports are supposed to be there.
The hole is supposed to be for a AT/XT din keyboard plug.
PacBell on the case, doesn't work.
Note that there are ISA slots and no case cutouts. There is one more with no cutout that is not shown.
Packard Bell that *works* just like the day I got it. This was one of the good ones that they made. Need ram, though. /edit will be a Linux machine in the future.
The sled was kinda jammed in there, with one screw added in the very back to hold it in. Tight fit, so it doesn't go anywhere. This is why there's no onboard power supply, the sled is in the way.
My Headstart Explorer. Neat machine, I plan on mounting it in a rack. Gotta get it tested, now that I have a correct monitor. /edit this will be going into the Nasa box I have (see other pics) as one of the machines built in.
Commodore-ish styled little Mattel handheld Gin game. Works great, but I never play it. I'll find it a home.
My IBM PS/1 Consultant. No shell, so I use it to test stuff with. The fdd you see died, so I put one in that has a plain-vanilla lift handle. 486, Intel.
Faceplate needed for thisIBM PS/1 Consultant tower.
Inside view. Must... FILL... EMPTY... SLOTS!
This is for sale. Dock has cd-rom, sound card, ethernet card, works great. I have two laptops for this, one you see, a Compaq LTE Lite. Works good, needs the math copro pulled and a new cmos battery.
Back of dock. There's a plastic cover that's long gone.
The left laptop is the 386SX/20, it needs stuff. Bonus with the lot. Totally fixable, though. I used it for a year.
Big honkin 286 serial terminal server. Hopefully it works, I'll make it a server again.
Back of big honkin 286. Note the little port box.
I can't wait to see what's up with this machine!
Choice of two monitors. Nice.
My very own 800XL! Never had one before, and this is great. Sure looks slick, don't it?
Two 1050 fdd's came with it. No cables at all, though. /edit got cables and one works and the other does not. Maybe fixable, not sure yet. With time I will try to repair it.
This is a pin-type dot matrix. Maybe a workhorse. We'll see. /edit works great, just slow, but definitely a powerhouse printer for large jobs!
Neat old printer, has a wheel inside with all the characters on it. So it's for mass-letters and stuff, no graphics unless I do ascii text stuff. edit/ it's broken, will not power up. No clue why, might diagnose it one day.
C64. Playmate for the Vic 20. I love to network stuff. What I really want is a C128!
I want to make a switch for this to be used between the Vic and the C=. The plans are online somewhere. Maybe Lemon64. Zimmer's page, maybe.
Okidata 180 printer for C=. Keeping it!
I couldn't find a home for this, so it got gone, NOT by me.
GBA with Joytech cover and light on. Lotta glare in the dim room. Fuji logo, right there.
Light on, open and on. Can't see the new lens, but *I* can.
Do you dare? legendarytimes.com rocks!
Altos 986T. Running Xenix, accessible by terminal or emulator over a null modem via serial port. Very cool. It is missing the ethernet card that goes with it, and is still pretty dirty on the inside.
Teletype. Old, beautiful even if it's kind of broken. Not mine, and has found a home.
Main board of the Mattel Hyperscan.
These are some kind of workstation frames, I called them Nasa stations when I named the pics. These are two of the five that I have. Some parts are missing, but they're easy enough to make out of sheet metal. Super Mega Turbo Gaming cabinets!!
More SMT (super mega turbo) future game cabinets. Computers, too. parts are coming, or I'll make them myself. *update* the guys at the club found the missing parts, so now there are five nearly complete units, missing only trim and one keyboard bezel.
I have recently found out that this is a Dolch brand computer, 386 main processor, but the bios battery died a long time ago. It is a heavy beast, and boots up to a setup screen. Thanks, nige, for the tip! The person I got it from said it has Windows 95 on it, though I haven't tried getting that to boot just yet. I wonder if it has the hardware inside to be a network analyzer, like the other Dolch machines like it? Hmm...
Dolch computer, closed up
Power supply being used for the teletype. I'm sure the original was about five times this size (about 8x4x2 or so inches)
That is an evaporative cooler on top of my car, yes. A friend and I are going to use the fan out of it for a project. More on that later.
This is how you have an NT/2K/XP type windows machine find hardware if it isn't detected.
Chuck Wagon error returns!
Clone of an Atari 2600Jr., for sale all over Argentina and I really want one!
Atari 2600 clone, looks like it was styled after the 400 case with the guts of a 2600. Named "Brassar" for sale in Argentina. How cool were the clones?!!??Not mine yet.
Another Atari 2600Jr. clone, this one comes with a cart with several games on it, which qualifies it as a multicart, a very cool thing for the Atari! Widely available in Argentina. Not mine yet.
Apparently a clone of the Watara handheld game console, it even has the same button layout, but the styling of an original Nintendo game Boy. Argentinian. Most wanted! Not mine yet.
Can you say PONG! in Spanish? here's how: ¡PONG! Argentinian. Not mine, thinking about if I really want one.
Is that a Linux penguin on the screen of this miniature, portable PC? Yes it is! When the store opens, I am dearly hoping I can carry these as a distributor! Want one for myself, too! Sadly, not mine.
Unknown circuit board, working on getting it identified. It might get sent to a collector (not me) but for now it's in my posession.
Found out what it is, it's for the 3DO, *not* the Genesis. Dead ringer, though. Not mine anymore, gave it to a friend that has a 3D0.
Never released by AT&T, so if you see anything like this, snag it, collectors will pay a small fortune for it. Only made in-house at AT&T as far as I know.
Sega sticker, but the Atari one went on first. :)
Home-brewed Zero Tolerance link cable. As yet untested, no room to set up two TV's and two Genesis consoles.
See Parsec, purple and light purple, Early Learning Fun in black and cream plastic, A-Maz-Ing in totally different labels and carts, and Munch Man and TI Invaders label variants.
First, the cream one is snap-together, no screw, and the black ones are printed sometimes upside down. Hmm.
molded upside down from each other.
see snaps together plus there is no serial marks on the cream one, and numbers and things are there for the black one.
Cybiko Classic handheld. A would-have-been, if the implementation had been better hardware-wise.
Cybiko Xtreme, better than the original but limited, again a hardware failure. I realy wanted this to work out, but it just didn't.
Today's swap meet score, part of it, see next pics. Fatal Labyrinth is a GREAT game! Like a graphical Roguelike. I had to get that Star Wars game, the only other N64 cart I have is also Star Wars.
Is that a Darth Vader mask? Not really, it's a game from Tiger, see other pics. Virtua Racing for the Saturn, and an expansion pack for Doom and Doom 2, 1000 levels of killing!
This is a shooter game, the gun is a light gun and you shoot at the four corners of the screen to pick up bonuses and kill empirical bad guys. Got it new in the package, but it was so beat up that I opened it. The handle on the gun folds up and stashes in the bottom compartment under the buttons.
Brought this home today (9-24-08) from the good guys at GameCrazy! Nobody there wanted it, so I stuck my number on the back, and went there today and picked it up! Sweet score! Set it up in the living room for this shot, now it is packed in plastic, waiting to be unleashed again!
Same as the other pic, but had to give a thumbs up cause to me this is a major score. I can't believe nobody else wanted this thing! El Paso is *not* Star Wars friendly.
This is an Activision box. This particular box had Guitar Hero for the DS in it, several copies in fact. It says Activision on it, so now this is the box that my Activision games for the 2600 live.
So far I haven't had one of these that are untested that don't work. BUilt like tanks. $5 each due to no hookups. Score.
same as before, different shot. Both work fine, not even sticky switches. Definitely a score.
Model 1 with the EXT port, same as before just had to illustrate. Share some Genesis Love!
Star Wars Battleship game, no ships though, but works. I'll come across ships later, this is in great shape as I've ever seen. Score.
Star Wars Battleship closed. Folds up nicely! Has a few sound effects. I think I counted, oh, two small scratches on it. Score.
N64 Battle for Naboo, a stormtrooper and a Episode 1 release of Artoo. Score! I have another Arto like this one but painted it green to match Whistler in the X-Wing series of novels by Micheal Stackpole. Great books! Written less like sci-fi and more like military history. A must read. Score.
Mario with tail, small rubber authorized toy, Castlevania Symphony of the Night by Tiger, Stargate: Atlantis Season 4, and phone charger I needed.
One player Jakk's Atari TV game, Tandy Deskmate on 5.25" disks with manual and quick start guide, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles for the NES and Zelda gold cart. Jakk's came with batteries!
Very odd and interesting combo. One of the thumb triggers needs a new switch, but otherwise they look and work well.
Battery cover is glued on, the inside looks pretty standard 2600 fare, though. Very good candidate for modding, though, with power on-board! 7800 mod? I think so.
One can wish :)
Much wanted! I definitely want to carry this in my store when it opens. The world needs more Genesis! More Mega Drive! What's up with the stenciling?? That sells it for me, but I can't draw that good :(
Stock with 6-button controllers, looks like a great system to me. These are for sale locally in Brazil. Found out that these systems retail for over 100USD!! I don't know what Tectoy is thinking, they could cover the world in Genesis goodness if they came down on the price. Too much for a re-release. A shame.
Sonic ball, oddly shaped. (C)1983
Game on left is the Full board console, the one on the right is the 3/4 board console. See the silver reflecting from under the grill? The one with the shorter grill is the better unit (sound is better).
This is the fuse fix that I implemented on a broken system. Not really broken, just had, well, a burnt fuse. The original part was a tiny little 2.5A fuse, replaced it with a (only for now) 4A fuse. This is mine, a keeper.
part of a large swap meet haul, Sonic Adventure for Dreamcast, Sonic rubber ball from '89, Space Invaders by Radica TV game, Mogul Maniac for the Atari 2600, Mario candy(never to be eaten as it is probably toxic but looks good).
Sega Genesis with a few games, all work great. The controller is missing the stress relief boot but tape will fix that.
The whold shebang, not powered up yet but soon. The MFM cable looks a little worn, I can replace it. That it has an external drive is neat. I don't know much of anything about this one yet. /edit: it has a memory error on most likely the expansion board :( I bet if I re-seat everything it'll all work great. Many upgrades inside!
MFM hard drive upgrade board.
Upgraded with a 3.5" fdd. Not sure of the capacity yet, just got a chance to mess around with it a little bit today. Not the power supply on the right side-- big, heavy.
Has both RGB monitor and composite, for plugging into a TV set's Video port of the AV ports. Handy. Strange serial port, the pins aren't all there. I have the monitor, it came separately, but works okay. No sound.
You can't read it here, but the black face plate says Seagate, and I bet there's a Seagate MFM drive in there. Also, the ram banks underneath the drives are almost full, though I couldn't get a pic of it.
Not bad! As you can see, it's a tabletop game, with not many scratches at all, from 1983. It even has a clock on it! You can set the time (though I haven't figured out how) and there's an alarm, too. Runs on two C cells. Missing battery cover. has a button that says AOL on it, not really sure why. Gone to a good home.
Military power supply, adjustable resistor and numbered resistors. Old school. These specifically will be used to repair a 2006-made DVD burner.
One of the many parts bins I have to draw from. Average age is about 25 years old. New.
Two mice that are nearly identical. Left, it has a serial port, three buttons, chip that has 9509, right a ps/2 port, two buttons, chip that says 9506. Both need special drivers to work, which is silly. Both are untested <grrr>
Abandoned concept from Sega, combining the Genesis and 32X in one unit. It would have been a sweet thing but had a bad finance thing behind it.
not pictured is the VHS copy of Guerras de las Galaxias below. oops.
a small collection of loose figures. Mostly droids, I'm an astromech fan!
School binder. What can I say, it's durable.
A *real* media center. Star Wars on VHS right on the top shelf.
Jedi Arena was not a good game, but I'm keeping it because it's Star Wars.
Star Wars is dispursed thorughout everything. Can you count the items??
From a class a friend of mine too, some kind of advertising class, can't remember.
This is what the arcade looks like now, as well as the following shots of it.
Note one bolt missing. I broke it as I was putting it on. HEAVY.
Once the hardware part is done and everything is working, it'll get a paint job.
Paint is very needed. Hardware first, though.
Front view of the screen. Nice crisp picture, too. Since this pic, the screen has been strapped down and does not move around in case it needs moving.
This 2600 top cover came from a Sunnyvale Heavy Sixer. I didn't think they had the speaker cutouts. Hmm...
Main board and switches of a Sunnyvale Atari 2600, model CX-2600, the famous Heavy Sixer. Supposedly this thing caught on fire, but I have not found one scorch mark or even smelled a smoky smell.
If I don't look real happy, the hat was too small and there was nobody to hold my jacket so it was hot in there. I graduated!
Very fun little handheld game to have! I play mine every day. Columns seems to help me think logically. Altered Beast is just fun.
The fuse is very small, and is mounted vertically. This is good, as you do NOT have to desolder the original to use a second, easier to install fuse, which is what I have done.
This is the bottom of an IBM ThnikPad 600X. The yellow wired in thing is the bios battery, and this picture shows how to change it. What I am doing is taking a normal CR2025 cell and using the leads that come with the original and throw it all back together.
The white plastic is a little "tuck-in" battery holder to make sure it doesn't hit the ram chips (of which I am adding another to max it out).
This is my Vic 20 Gorf! box. Note it is in a box shape after much doctoring. It had been crushed and moved around several times before I got it.
I probably could have flattened this out more, but I have no way to press a glued strip on the inside to make sure it stayed in contact with the box. This is sadly on both sides.
The corners had to have reinforcing added, they are a main crush point. Also, the flap has a strip added to the inside so it stayed flat and would open and close. Where the flap tucks in there is no glue so it can close normally. Poor thing.
The tab was totally gone so I had to make a new one so it would close and stay in shape. The edge of the flap is torn so I added a small strip to keep everything in place. The trick is to glue it on when it's semi-folded so it doesn't cause more damage when you close it if you glue it flat.
The bottom is totally glued shut, there was no way around this. You can see there is another self-made tab in there, as well as a strip for the whole bottom flap. I used 3x5 index cards as materials for these, they work great while being flexible and just a little stiff.
Bottom of the box, totally glued down. Someone had tried to tape everything shut and this is the result of *that*. Yuck.
Atari Jr. sitting on top of a Commodore 128 to show size. Has Donkey Kong in it to show how much the cart goes in. Sitting next to a C64 cart, Radar Rat Race because it was there. Model 1 Genesis in the background, it gets played almost daily.
Box of connectors, $5 score!
Sega Dreamcast as-is for $5, (works great) Gravis Stinger (my second one), $2. Score! I was told that the Sega makes a noise as it plays, "it whistles" she said. I can repair this(no need, my other one sounds like this, also). Stinger is a serial port game-pad. They are giving me... ideas.
All three for $6.50, not bad! All are in pretty good shape, too. I saw the Saturn game under the counter at Goodwill, someone was trying to snag it at that crooked store. Not this day :)
The Atari paddle is about to be for sale, I have one for me already. Files for trimming edges for case modding, three NES games cause they were cheap ($2 each).
Inside the DC was a burn of Tony Hawk 2. Gravy.
Three McDonald's transformers from '87 and '88, the little white spaceman to round out a dollar, and three Star Wars bobble heads. Switches and fuse holders, never know when you'll need them.
Pardon the sink. Lots of Star Wars Blasters!! Some look extremely authentic, others like toys. Does the white one look like a Wii accessory? I sure think so. Slap a WiiMote in it and play Link's Crossbow Training!
Episode 1 droid blaster rifles. Best looking ones of the lot, I'd love to make a mock-up using real parts. See my knob-mod, nothing fancy but looks neat.
Orange Star Tours Han Solo blaster.
Blasters from Star Wars! These look less like toys and more like props. Here, two Tattooine "junk" blasters and a Star Tours Stormtrooper rifle.
This is the coolest looking Pong clone that I have ever seen. Works great, too, just needs the right RF modulator box. /edit: one controller is not detected, so it needs a potentiometer in it to be fixed. Soon...
Another shot of the same, great old pong system. One controller needs a new potentiometer in it, I'll get to it... one day.
I had to get this, it is a classic. There ae so many elements of new movies present in this one it isn't even funny. You can even see some of the car designs in here are actually on the road (generally speaking).
Inside of the helmet. Cheap but looks great.
This is a kids' costume clone mask. Too small for an adult to wear but nicely detailed and will make a great SMT Games decoration accessory.
As you can see it's all molded, but I was thinking of making the "antenna" a bit more real and definitely seal that seam of the two halves.
Some sort of raid card or just a controller. I needed this pretty bad, sure hope it works.
All the decent video game stuff was already gone from Kay Bee Toys, but I did manage to get some good Star Wars stuff strictly for resale.
Kay Bee haul stuff.
Kay Bee again. Lightsabers are common, but I was pondering making these electronically modded. Maybe.
Everything in there was 50% off, so I can sell these at sticker price. Works for me :) I had some kids come in and they went nuts over what little SW stuff I had, so I decided to stock up. They'll be back, the Force tells me so.
More SW stuff and another McD transformer. Not bad today at all.
Spectra tabletop jet game, (C)1989, very cool. This is the Gen of the lot, a Spectra flying table top game. It's a little busted up, but I am gonna fix it and make it much better looking than it is now.
I am thinking get rid of all the stickers and paint everything on. New, ultrabright LED's will also be going in. Maybe a custom sound chip, this one sounds terrible and not very original. Definitely getting in some LED's for this, and new sounds.
NOT part of today's haul, but added for emphasis on how easy it would be to make a similar game but Star Wars. It would be very cool.
Sorry about the fuzziness of this one. The stick is a left-right only control, and some kid pulled up and broke it. I will repair it, maybe replace it with another two-button game stick I have that is also broken but the stick part is fine. I think I want to put some actual instrumentation in the dashboard and make it look really fun and detailed.
WHY didn't LucasArts think to put something like this out? It just screams X-Wing mod to me, but not gonna go that route. I can see something like this with a total Star Wars theme, though.
Spectra Jet opened up for the first time in 20 years.
Side view of drum, some gears and throttle handle.
Back of the master control board (MCB) that handles sound and everything else.
The broken part that kept the whole shebang from working right. I was correct, whoever it was broke it by pulling back on the stick. The glue ought to be dry by tomorrow.
Fussy pic of the motor that spins the drum that projects onto the screen. Must be a Mabuchi, they last forever.
Flight stick. It uses a similar setup like a Wico Boss or Command and Control 2600 joystick. Very nice manufacture.
Memory cards for that system, to be put up on the chuckwagon. I highly promote tech toys for kids.
Oh, what the clones will do since the end of the Clone Wars!
This is my favorite Model 1 Genesis, and yes, it's because of the sticker.
I thought this was an RF shield, but it's a heat sink! That's one heck of a heat sink! That's a pretty big heatsink, it could have been cut from a car frame.
The LED is *not* firmly attached to the case, so a blue one will be there soon!
Full pic of the main board of this great Model 1.
Chips used to be a lot bigger back when this thing was released.
I had to post this, since my shop is operational these are pretty much all my screwdrivers at home.
My shop logo. 'Nuff said :)
This I made today, it's a CX-40 joystick (and compatible) tester! I have a youtube video up on this one. Works great! Fun, too!
I swear, these are the best project boxes I have ever used.
Now there are two of them! And they're RAIDERS fans!
Authentic Atari on the left, Mexican clone/ripoff on the right. Nearly identical. If someone can get more info, it would be appreciated! /edit: Found out it is definitely a rip off, nothing special here, move along.
Main major differences. Note the dome switches and the layout of the traces.
This is actual Atari hardware.
This is rip-off clone hardware.
The rubber feet on Mexico are slightly different than the Atari ones.
I did this in response to the new Nintendo Research Base comment on atariage. All homage to George Lucas and Satoru Iwata.
see the seal? Is it real??
Kitt visits El Paso!
My Super Nintendo, to be taken apart. Works great, just showing off.
Yes, THAT cable. Fragile!
Under that metal shield is the power regulation on the main board. To get that off, you have to totally disassemble it, and I'm not doing that right now.
That is the Fuse, conveniently away from everything else, and jumperable, and replaceable. Check this if it won't turn on at all. See the threads of screws there? They're only accessible from the underside of the mainboard.
SOLD! Gone to a good home. Works and looks great.
Future Sega emulation machine. It will be dedicated to it and run nothing else. Secured a black faced floppy drive for it already. I'm going to run not a floppy but a media card bay, logos soon.
Probably the best controllers I have ever used *ever* and I suggest you find one for your collection.
KD5KZL (Joe) holding a big frekkin antenna.
Big frekkin antenna mount.
My very first Atari 65XE and it's great! I love this thing. The look of the ST line has always been a favorite, and I get the punch of the Atari 8-bit in a sleek package with an updated Basic. Who could ask for morre?? Okay, I do, I need more cables and accessories and as always, GAMES!
Poor, sick P1 machine, it's missing parts on the inside that I don't think I'll ever be able to find. Maybe one of these days.
Macintosh Performa 638CD, has a built in TV tuner that's analog so I'm going to use it to hook up anything with an antenna out-- like the Ataris! Very nice in my book, and very useful! I'll be able to do actual screenshots of gameplay!
Currently upgrading the 350mb hdd to a full 8GB. It's a tru operation on a Mac to do this. Learn a lot as I go, that's for sure.
A pink computer case. Not bad to look at and very nice condition. Screams to have LEDs put all around it.
Full 19" rack-mountable computer case. There's a floppy drive, cd-rom and harddrive in there, and the whole thing is pretty heavy duty. WHY does nobody want this stuff anymore?? Great for projects! The hdd turned out to be an 80GB drive! Nice!
curious sunken area, does not match the surrounding terrain.
This is for sale for shipping plus $1 if anyone wants it. Not sure of the capacity of it, but it will hold a LOT of floppies!
This is from the Mac Color Classic, the poor thing has had all of its ram pulled :( That stuff is getting rare these days.
Just got this today, a friend of mine had it and stopped using it years ago. It's really nice, and here it is formatting the hard drive in the upper right getting it ready for the 638CD! Love it!
I've had this for a while but it was at a friend's house. He dropped it back off to me the other day, still haven't gotten to this one yet. It's IBM, was very expensive in it's day. Now it's mine and destined for an upgrade.
Part of the radio haul, big and heavy! Came with a few tapes, too.
I guess this is IBM's old stuff.
large tape-- quite a few of these.
Back plate is missing, shows the insides-- check out that transformer!
Typical 72-pin ram for a PC that does NOT fit inside a Color Classic from Apple. The notch is spaced different, the board is too long overall. Help! Ram needed for this thing!
Got the ream thanks to a great user on the vintage-computer forums, olePigeon. Thanks! It works great!!
Also, I do have the 30-pin simms, just not the main system ram.
Tektronix 4025. Not mine yet, but it's waiting for me to pick it up-- as soon as I have a place to put it I'll go and get it.
Tektronix 4052 computer from 1977! This was the budget model, no available to the public, now it's the pride of my collection.
Everything it needs to communicate-- RS232, odd printer and another odd port, and a *joystick* port, so now I want the joystick for this thing. Sweet!
When I first looked inside, all the manuals and paperwork that came with it were inside. Photocopies, but still in order and in good shape. Future game machine:)
A few keys missing, I think it was a common keyboard so I might be able to get another one for it.
I have a stack of these tapes, so I can download all the games I can find and save them all to tape-- 300K each. Great stuff! I sure hope this beast works.
Another reason I like the 4052 so much!
My friend from the Linux user group gave me this, and it seems to play great! You have to have two players, no one player option that I have found yet.
Another friend from the Linux group, Ernst, brought this curiosity, an ad from the 80's, great stuff! Mint condition, too!
Part of the collection or at least most of what;s here.
These are for sale, let me know if you're interested (I'll see if I still have it)
My Yobo NES player not quite installed in my computer. But it fits!
Someone asked me if this could be upgraded to today's standards, and it cannot.
Texas Instruments 486 processor, definitely.
This is interesting. The sound card has IDE connectors on it, and one goes to the board just above it to an external set of connectors! Scanner or external hdd? External CD-ROM most likely, those were all the rage.
Just looking at it overall. Four 30-pin simm slots, grand total of SIX ISA slots, and a 171MB hard drive!
Also has a math coprocessor in there, called Green.
See how the IDE connector is lined to the external interface board. Complete with separate power connector, uunplugged to show it better.
Memory slots, math co-pro.
Left: a dead P4 mainboard, see how big it is compared to the 486 board on the right? Big difference!
Look how small it looks compared to the Odyssey 2 under it! Actually is really small but HEAVY for what it is.
Back panel of the Aquarius. No joystick ports, only Printer, Tape drive and RF out. YES the Odyssey 2 is bigger than an XBox :) Also the power supply is hardwired to the Aquarius. It works, but all I can do is type Basic into it, I have no games yet.
