Main Raffle Prize
The Gold C-128 - Yul Haasmann (NV)
Even if you win one of the subsidiary prizes your raffle ticket will go in the draw drum to be eligible for the main raffle prize draw.
So what is the main raffle prize at CommVEx you ask?
Some of you may recall in December when Michael Hunter, of 8BitDesigns fame, announced that he was offering for sale a customized, gold painted, C-128. Pictures and full details of this system will soon be posted on this site but it has 64 KB VDC RAM, a dedicated mouse port, stereo SID chips, built in geoCable compatible Parallel Printer interface plus one of Michael's Power Pro 250 customized (110 Volt) power supplies with leads to power the C-128 plus 10 accessories (like a RAMLink and disk drives).
So is this unique, highly customized, gold painted C-128 system the main raffle prize at CommVEx?
It is only PART of the prize.
Michael has also painted up two (yes, 2!) 1571 drives in gold to match the C-128. Both of these drives are JiffyDOS equipped. Both have been modified to get power from the Power Pro 250.
Michael has also painted a 1351 Mouse. A modified XETEC Super Graphics printer interface is included.
Also part of the package are replacements for all the chips inside the C-128. They have all been socketed so if the need should arise it will be easy to pull the chip and replace it from the spare pool.
A set of manuals will accompany the computer.
A Commodore 2002 monitor (won't be painted gold) will also be included in the package along with a set of Altec Lansing speakers to enjoy the Stereo SID output.
