Thanks all for your answer, What I saw of these machines was really negative, perhaps due to the amount of modifications Needed to convert them to SECAM (It was hell for the C64). I also left the company early 1985, Perhaps that they had a second life I was not aware of (I never saw these machines in sell, when C64 when sold by many chops). I never saw a C128 but (on the paper) I found this machine more interesting than the ted series. I worked mainly on the CBM8032-CBM8296 series I thought that the ted series was just unfinished prototypes. > >Besides, it is really not much fun anymore playing with machines that >everyone knows and has every bit of them well documented.

It had so much potential; VIC-II, SID, IEEE, BASIC4+, 128K ram, RS-232, excellent keyboard, great expandability, and it's one of the nicest looking. Enjoy, and let us know what you discover. Steve PS: The C65 gives it a good run for the money but I'd say more people know about the C65 due to the documentation that was released and the extra interest the machine had. Mention a P500 and even knowledgable Commodore people might not have heard of it.
