This is a 12.25MHz Commodore COLT (right). OOOOooo, a capital "C" machine! A 20Meg HD, 720k 3.5 inch floppy and a 5.25 inch floppy. That is an Apple //c sitting next to it with another COLT under the Apple monitor.



circa 1991 CDTV


This is a Commodore CDTV and an Amiga 1000. That's a 1702 monitor with Labtec speakers. The 1000 has a Newtek Digi View with the Digidroid for scanning pics via an old, old VCR. The CDTV has keyboard, mouse, 2 floppies, A64 hardware with a 1541 II drive, an IMG scan on an MPS1250 printer, and a Golden Image Hand Scanner. Nice setup!



circa 1994 Amiga 1200


A Commodore Amiga 1200.
This was one of the last makes, models and computers, that Commodore manufactured.
It is truly a nice machine.

    circa 1996 ESCOM Amiga ag: Amiga 1200


    An ESCOM a.g. Amiga 1200.
    This A1200 is loaded. ROM and OS info from inside the computer all says Commodore in it, even though this is an Amiga Sold from the first of many companies to buy the Amiga technology from Commodore. Despite the label on the outside, it is an Amiga through and through.

  • OS3.1
  • 52Megs Fast RAM
  • 2Megs Graphics RAM
  • Blizzard 060 49MHz accelerator

    circa (made 1991) 1994 C64DX aka C65




    This is a C64DX Rev B mother board from the late great Commodore Business Machines.
    Yes, here be the guts to the C65!



    A close up of the Victor chip!

    circa 2004 commodore 64 DTV


    Right at the end of their ownership of the commodore 8-bit stuff, Tulip Computers lets it go about the time this is released. Design headed up by Jerri Ellsworth of commodore one fame, moved by Mamoth Toys out of Hong Kong on QVC!



    This is part of my old, old office, back in 1994!
    That is a SuperPET, a 4040 drive with, yes, the Datassette on top.
    Next to it is a CBM 2023p printer.
    The next machine over is a VIC20 with a VICModem and 1350 mouse.
    The drive, I must admit, is a fraud -- it's a commodore 1541 in a VIC1541 case.
    My friend Rex gave me the case after I had bought the drive without a case for $5.
    That's an MPS803 on top of an Epson COMTEX color monitor!
    Those were the daze!



    Ok, this is the other half of my old office:
    CDTV on the printer stand under an HP 500C, above an MPS1270 Inkjet, and HP4ML laser printer.
    That is my trusty PX-8 (Epson Geneva) CP/M notebook on the very bottom.
    The next pile is a commodore 128 with KEYDOS and JiffyDOS in a Keytek bay with two 1571s
    It has an Icontroller, 1802 monitor, and 128k REU.
    Next we have a commodore 128D with FD4000, 1581, HD85, 1 Meg RAMLink tucked away in the back.
    M3 mouse, TAC2 joystick, 1702 and 1080 monitors.



    Here is the inside of that flat 128 above reveiling the KeyDOS ROM and JiffyDOS chip sets.



    Layout of some of the above.
