ColecoVision Adam: the working CPU

ColecoVision Adam CPUAmidst the console crisis, the all around 1983 video game industry hysteria and the undeniable rise of the home computer, Coleco went on and shipped 100,000 or so units of the ColecoVision Adam hybrid. The Adam -now quite obviously a rarity- was in essence a ColecoVision console disguised as a home computer, complete with proper keyboard, two built-in tape drives, extra memory and word processing capabilities. Most people were not particularly excited...

Then again, happily, some were and you can find out why by reading more on the Adam here, here or here. To grab the working main bit of the computer for a modest price you can try your luck over at this ColecoVision Adam CPU eBay auction. Seller ships worldwide.
