I've put this gem of a machine up on ebay. It's easily the strangest computer I've ever owned.

It did work at some point, some time ago. I used to collect old Macs years ago, and a friend of a friend gave me the Spartan. I believe he bought it new, but I can't be for certain. I never even plugged it in.

At any rate, it made it's way into a box and was promptly forgotten about, until a couple of weeks ago.

Bummer, I was hoping you have used it and tested. Anyway, congratulations you will make good money, they are pretty rare and sought.

SW6,

I started collecting C64 computers about six months ago.
I decided to spread out a little. lol
I was looking for a way to tie the C64 and my Apples together.
I have seen a Mimic before (many moons ago), but could not afford it then.
I figured I'd try my luck now.

Hello SW6

Would you ship to Europe and do you have the CPU-card?

Final selling price: over $300.00.

I didn't win it. Sad
