That sweet C128D...

Postby Carcenomy on Mon May 30, 2011 8:44 pm

matsondawson, good score brother! I see you picked up that reasonably tidy-looking 128D, I was bidding on it and super keen till it all got a bit ferocious and out of my price bracket. Good to see someone I know picked it up :)

Thanks, we'll see if it's sweet, I couldn't tell from the photos.
I wish some Commodore Pet's would come up.

PETS are as rare as hen's teeth here in New Zealand. I'm very glad I managed to snag one. Out of all the units in my collection the PET is one of my favourites. I just love the retro design.

They tend to be tempremental beasts though going from all the diagnostic activity on the International Vintage Computer Forums. I guess the same can be said of anything made in the late 70s. My Apple II+ can be misbehave at times too.

On that note, I wonder who got all those PETs Alan Gilcrest had?

Didn't Alan liquidate the entire collection on TradeMe at massively slashed pricing?

Yes he did, but someone bought the whole lot. I wonder who did and if they have any resale intentions for them?

What's the verdict on the 128D matson?

Ah yes, it was mint, very few scratches.
I was most happy.
Now I have a C128D that doesn't look like it was born in a land-fill.
