I have a genuine B520 low profile, which is the American equivalent.  As I 
believe was discussed in this forum B128's were called B500's / B700's at 
first in the states, before being re-named B128 (low profile) /CBM 128 and 
CBM 256's (high profile).  There were no low profile American B256's except 
for the two known to exist from the shop prototype phase.  I got this info 
and the B520 from Bruce Faierson (now deceased), former president of 
CBUG.  He also sent me a B700X, which eventually became the CBM 128 (high 
profile), with an 8088 co-processor card.
