    I wonder what mine is worth, I have the blue face PET with the 6550 RAM and the original box with matching serial number. I only have 1/2 the foam though. I don't want to sell it, just wondering.

    Sorry, I was thinking it was in a socket. 100 percent positive the 6502 will not function with reset pulled low. If you can't get reset to come high, the PET won't work.

    It's not the character generator because you can see characters. The character generator is simply a ROM and if corrupt the characters wouldn't look correct. The video circuit appears to be working...

    Years ago I read that during the transition time from II to II+ there were some parts interchanged. You would have II+ with older keyboards, II's with newer lowered power lights, and even II+ with II...

    I did this a few years ago. I used an Adaptec SCSI card with floppy controller. This way I could write Model 1 single density disks! Worked great. Emulators can be very useful tools.

    Actually, the SD card comes with it stock, the RAM drive kit emulates the Altair disk controller using 2 battery back RAM chips. You load the disk images off of the SD card into the RAM drives, so...

    Yeah, I do this for "advertising" every once in a while :) I used to be able to sell them at $59 but the cost of the RAM went up so I was forced to increase the price. That price is nearly cost.

    Yes, I've talked with Thomas about that and he said in bulk you can get the color matched paddles. Blue I believe was the color he doesn't have currently.
