Hi lonboy

Old-Computers.com is a good website to go to when you want a trip down memory lane.


The Philips Videopac G7200 is very retro.

Here is one for sale in Austria :-

and a Radiola Jet 27, which is the same machine, in Sweden :-

All the best

Many years ago when I was about 10 years old my father bought a Philips Videopac 7200 (not the 7000 or 7010) with the chessgame (the cartridge + a huge special box module  inserted in the back of the videopac). It was not a dedicated computer but it had a nice integrated display on it, It was my first 'semidedicated chess computer' and my most beloved game after the atari2600 chess cartridge. One day It 'died' and was thrown by my mother to the dustbin (thanks to heaven I still have the atari cartridge).  Has anybody any information about it? Has anybody seen a auction of this 'chesscomputer'?

Thank you

PD. Sorry for my bad english
