Hallo allemaal,

I recently aquired a PDC Clipper. Please see the two bottom left pictures at

This suitcase is actually a C64 plus a lot of extras: a thermical (?)
printer, a 3" floppy (3, not 3.5), a plasma screen, an extended BASIC and
extra I/O. The Belgian I bought it from said it was from 1983 but writing
this email I remember that the 64'er mentioned it so IMHO it must be at
least 1984. FYI, I bought it for 100 Euro. Why did I buy it? My very first
C64 was built from leftovers when PDC went bankrupt. Some years later I gave
the set to the children of a friend. When the interest in C= returned, I
regreted that decision of course. This oportunity made up that loss in more
than one way.

Technical details:
- C64, rev. A or B. I opened it but, not that far.
- on top of this board is an extra board with I/O and extra ROMs. This extra
I/O includes at least a 6522 and a 6551. But the 6551 was not placed. IRRC
there was another place for a 6522. The last one was meant for an IEEE448
- the plasma-display is connected to the VIC by means of a small PCB
situated between the VIC and the C64-mobo.
- a small 6502 system made out of a 6264, 6522, 765 and 2*2764s serves as
interface between the IEC-bus and the 3" floppy.

The above is from memory, seeing the pictures reminded me that I hadn't told
you yet because of the fuzz around Commodore/Tulip. Next week I have a week
off and if there is more interest, I will dig up more details.
