Manky TT for sale on eBay.

Post by stephen_usher » Sun Jun 03, 2018 9:26 am

I see there's a rather manky TT for sale on eBay at the moment:

http://r.ebay.com/WSTf93

It looks like the battery has leaked and destroyed the motherboard near the SCSI port and it's a bit pricey at nearly £300.

However, there is one point of interest... it has a Matrix VME graphics card!
Intro retro computers since before they were retro...
ZX81->Spectrum->Memotech MTX->Sinclair QL->520STM->BBC Micro->TT030->PCs & Sun Workstations.
Added code to the MiNT kernel (still there the last time I checked) + put together MiNTOS.
Collection now with added Macs, Amigas, Suns and Acorns.

It may be manky but to bring it back from the dead would be a good project. To get another TT back on the road so to speak would be an admirable thing. Shame the front of the case has been mutilated to fit a new floppy drive.

It looks like its got a CA401059-001 Rev B ST RAM card with 2MB (16x TCS514256AJ-10) RAM which I believe is upgradeable to 8MB.

Yeah. I've bought two fully working TTs for less than that in the past year and a half. I'd love to fix it but not for that price.

I really dislike when people get hardware like this for basically nothing, and then they sell it for a premium. Especially in such a poor condition.

Ditto!

I've had people try and sell me "junk" in the past, something which looks like it's been dug up from 10 years of being in the garden, untested, 3 times the price the going rate, and such people make it sound like they are doing me some huge favour! :roll:

On the Picture there is a Matrix TC1208E GK Card. When the card works this is a bargain ...
