You really shouldn't have mentioned that one now Dick will want one of those as well.

Although I have a Fidelity Elite Premiere which has the same board as an Avant Garde I have yet to get an Avant Garde. You have beaten me to it Dick. Congratulations.

Why did they call it a Mobile Master and is it much different from the later models?

All the best
Mike



Righto, Mike - but I need to buy all the versions in order, so I am looking for the model 2100 now. 

I found out on some other board, that I will not mention here, that the reason for the name is the program in the 6081 was introduced in some computer chess competition located in Mobile, Alabama in the U.S.

So it is Mobile and not mobile! 

I even have the box and manual, for this one.  Perhaps I am finally learning.

The V11 is not a Fidelity produced model but an upgrade by Wilfried Bucke :-

Mike,

I have heard of this Bucke guy...a friend collector of mine just received a V11. He told me it works perfectly well.

You do not even need an AG for this, a Glasgow or Budapest (those with one Display) will suffice...

But Mr Bucke has retired and is living in Italy now...if one needs an V11 one should hurry

Maybe....but no. It is really expensive (1300)...puuuhh

My wife will certainly kill me!

I think there were 13 different Fidelity Elite Avant Gard models produced, with this one being the first in 1985.  I want one of each of them. 


Dick,

I thought there were only eleven Versions of the Fidelity AG?

I know that the one with an 68060 Processor and 72 MHz clock speed is the latest, and it is called Version11.

The Fidelity Elite Avant Gard, model 6081 (known as the Mobile Master, for some reason) arrived today.  I purchased this beautiful computer from John Dutton, who has sold several Phantoms on eBay and other computers to both Ismenio and me.

This is a wonderfully attractive board and pieces set.  The pieces are large and have a nice weight and feel to them.  The board is not tournament sized, with 1 3/4 inch squares.  I like the dual displays that sit up like little chess clocks.  The computer seems to work perfectly, and that is a relief to me after recent events.  It came in the box and I have the manual.

I see in the manual that this computer can use additional modules.  I think that at least some of these are the same ones that my old SC9 can use.  The modules that it lists are:

Book Openings I (model CB9)
Book Openings II (model CB16)
64 Greatest Games (model CG64)
Tarrasch Defense (model TDF)
FIDE Chess Openings (a 5 module set - models EOA, EOB, EOC, EOD and EOE)

Have any of you ever seen any of these modules?  I want some!!  Where can I get them? 

I think there were 13 different Fidelity Elite Avant Gard models produces, with this one being the first in 1985.  I want one of each of them. 


Let the offers begin to sell me modules and Fidelity EAG's.
