Hello Larry,

You write on your page that the UltiMax was probably only released in
Japan.  Have you seen the German ad on my Ultimax page
(http://www.hut.fi/Misc/cbm/docs/ultimax.html)? I don't think that the
machine was ever released on the German market, because it is based on the
6566 video chip (the 6567 variant with non-multiplexed address lines,
which was only made for NTSC).  But anyway they planned to introduce it in
Germany as well.

I have the UltiMax schematic diagram on paper, but I would need at least a
2000dpi grayscale scanner to make it readable, it is an extremely bad
copy.  If someone (Ruud, I'm thinking of you :-) offers to reconstruct the
UltiMax schematic, I can mail a paper copy (one DIN A3 sheet I think) to


P.S.: Your pictures of the P-500 look familiar.  Are they by any chance
from George Page's collection?  I should have better scans.  Yep,
