Well, its not really a home computer, but so fucking rare that its even affordable because its so unknown. Here's a pic from behind! :D

The MC-10

a big z80 development system thingie called Datasomething. I save it just for the rom-writer and the enormous lit-up "boot" button (yes it says boot).

wow, that's the coolest spectrum ever! backstory, plz
added on the 2007-08-02 13:47:28 by linde linde
... The backstory is that i got it from Fierman, who got it from Raver/Phantasia (iirc..) - who is from latvia and often visits Russia to get old comps. At the X2004 i got it, in exchange for a rare REU for the c64. (the casing is metal (!), yellow is spelled 'Vellow' to name a few nice features.)

Fact is - i have no clue what it was used for back then, i know for sure it's from Russia... But i love to think it was used by the KGB for highly secret missions with rockets, agents and astronauts.

Anyone who has more info - please post it here or mail me.

Not sure which one in my collection would have to be the rarest. Maybe my Amiga 1000, but probably it's the Atari 800 (at least here in Europe).

A "Multifunktionales Telefon" by the "Deutsche Post" (btx-terminal from '87).
Sadly, it has been rewired for supporting an external video source: now the shift-button switches "internal software" and "external source", which makes it even more unusable than it is by default.

Got an Atari 600XL and an 800 lying around somewhere. You also don't see Atari 7800's too often here in Switzerland.

Yamaha YIS503, YIS503II, YIS503III


There's a lot of them on eBay , in case you have money to burn ;)
