MPS802, 8 of 9 IIRC.

Again MPS802. After the hack it was the far superior machine but from the
basic capabilities I wonder what Commodore's intention was with this

801 and 803 were somewhat identical, but the 803 was able to print

The articles you mentioned have been published in late 1985, I think.
