Well, for the time being, I'm calling it a CBM 500/700. Early literature from Europe says that those were the top names for the CBM-II low profile machines before they settled on CBM 610/620. Since the serial number is low, that will do for now. I have put together a page for it at: http://www.zimmers.net/cbmpics/cb700.html It has a bunch of links to photos for all the mysteries I described. The binaries for the ROMs are also there, for anyone interested. Since the previous and original owner got the machine without an original box at a C= fire sale, and he swears the sticker has always been torn, I'm afraid speculation is what I will have to live with. Of course, I don't like ambiguity, especially with regard to my Commodore computers. :) He said that he believed it was called a CBM 500, which is all I have to go on... - Bo > -----Original Message----- > From: firstname.lastname@example.org > [mailto:email@example.com]On Behalf Of William Levak > Sent: Friday, November 02, 2001 9:53 PM > To: 'firstname.lastname@example.org' > Subject: RE: What model C= machine is this? > > > On Fri, 2 Nov 2001, Baltissen, R (Ruud) wrote: > > > Hallo Bo, > > > > > The back plate is plainly from a CBM P500 (joystick ports > > > knocked out, but unpopulated). > > > The ROM chips (EPROMs with stickers, of course) read "CBM 700 Kernal", > > > etc... > > > > What about a P500 case with a 700 motherboard?
