One shiny, black Commodore CDTV

The Commodore CDTV is one of history's sleekest failed pieces of hardware. Essentially a keyboardless Amiga 500 with a CD-ROM drive in a black set-top box that was ridiculously priced and a bit under-powered for 1991. As for its software and games, well, what it mainly got were enhanced versions of existing games and those multimedia/edutainment things everyone was producing back in the early '90s. Oh, and it came with a truly intriguing controller.

Interestingly, though not extremely expensive, the CDTV doesn't appear very often on eBay and you'll be happy to know there's a Commodore CDTV auction waiting for your bids right now. You'll get the console, the remote/controller, the CD tray and the required cables.

Seller is shipping to United States, Canada, United Kingdom, Denmark, Romania, Slovakia, Bulgaria, Czech Republic, Finland, Hungary, Latvia, Lithuania, Malta, Estonia, Australia, Greece, Portugal, Cyprus, Slovenia, Japan, Sweden, Korea, South, Indonesia, Taiwan, South Africa, Thailand, Belgium, France, Hong Kong, Ireland, Netherlands, Poland, Spain, Italy, Germany, Austria, Israel, Mexico, New Zealand, Singapore, Switzerland and Norway.
