The crazies are at it again

Not sure who's this is, but that's a mighty steep price for an incomplete 64C setup. My good buddy Glenn picked his up with an 1802 and all the appropriate cabling plus a bunch of software for $80...

eisa on Trademe. A lasting reminder of a Compaq fetish when I was younger.

Given that the Turbo Chameleon will set you back $4-500 new, that auction was not such as bad deal. But I can see how someone not knowing that would be confused.

Yeah the Turbo Chameleon looks pretty badass, negates the degraded drives and non-existent media issues common today with the 64.
