CommVEx v10 2014 exhibits

Post by rbernardo »

Because it is the 30th anniversary of the Plus/4, the Plus/4 will be exhibited -- a PAL model and a 1551 disk drive (formerly from Peter Hanson, the Plus/4 king of England), and an SD2IEC drive made to look like a 1551. Along with the exhibit will be games, demos, and applications.

Truly,

A chiclet-keyboarded PET 2001 will be there for everyone to play with.

Plus programs on cassette (for the built-in cassette deck in the 2001).

Merry Christmas!

More computers to be exhibited -- the Multiple Classic Computer 216 (with C64 and Amiga cores), an AmigaOne XE G4, and a towerized CommodoreOne.

The Clark County Commodore Computer Club (of Las Vegas) will be exhibiting a C128 and Plus/4 set-up.

O.K., I know table space is limited... even for me. However, there is a serious lack of classic Amiga hardware for exhibit. So, I will be bringing an Amiga 4000 with 16 megs of RAM, OS 3.1, 2 gig IDE hard drive, and keyboard autographed by CBM engineer Dave Haynie. :)

Trying to make everything fit on one table,

Ack! With the addition of the A4000, there is no more room in the car. For more room, something has to be taken out of the exhibit... and that would be the CommodoreOne. I'm already having trouble getting the A1 XE to fit.

Leaving for Vegas within the hour,

Oh, well, we ran out of power strips and monitors to show off everything. (The 5C's had a monitor failure out of the 3 or 4 monitors they brought in.) So, I did not get to show off the MCC-216, and the 5C's did not show off their VIC-20 and Plus/4.

Still in Las Vegas until Sunday,
