    The interesting thing about those is that they have eight slots, but with the wider slot spacing of the original IBM PC. I wonder if that was the inspiration for IBM to put eight slots into the XT, but they put them closer together so they didn't need to redesign the case, and thus was able to bring it to market earlier.

    Some people might not realize it, but just to clarify, the CDP 1600 is an enhanced clone of the 5150. The 5160 was released after the CDP. It is not an XT 5160 clone, like most clones you see around.

    And I noticed this eBeh item also seems to have the CDP OEM MS-DOS 3.2 like that other one. Wouldn't mind taking a look at that version, although it's probably close to vanilla MS-DOS 3.2 at that point. (Still looking for the Eagle 1600 DOS 1.25 system files BTW)

    While the CDP 1600 was released before the XT, the specific hardware in the ebay auction was manufactured after the XT, as it has MS DOS 3.2 and BIOS ROMs from 1984.

    I really hope someone picks up the CDP 1600. I don't think I can swing it this month.
    Offering a bounty for:
    - The software "Overhead Express" (doesn't have to be original, can be a copy)
    - A working Sanyo MBC-775, Olivetti M24, or Logabax 1600
    - Documentation and original disks for: Panasonic Sr. Partner, Zenith Z-160 series
    - Music Construction Set, IBM Music Feature edition (has red sticker on front stating IBM Music Feature)
