I have been looking for one of these "cheap" for a long time and have finally come across one. Actually, someone who has been reading my blogs saw I was looking for one and said they have one in storage. He sent me this photo and is asking $100. I will be picking it up while I am on business driving from So Cal to Arizona so no shipping.

I can't wait to get it. This was the computer that started it all for me as my Junior High School in Millard, Nebraska had about 2 dozen of these in the computer lab. I remember playing Oregon Trail and some Loch Ness Monster educational game on this among a few others.

Where can I find old software for this - like Oregon Trail? Do any of you have some old software?

OK I'll bite. Is it a model 4 ?

Mike, excellent score! If you can cut your own disks you can download the programs (sure you knew that). And there are plenty of folks that have vintage disks they can copy (if they wanna hoarde them still).

That machine looks to be in excellent condition!!
