there are no 'derivations' from the cursor based keyboard module as far as I know.

correct, it is simply a MM I (Mephisto III with 8 MHz 1806 CPU) with Vancouver adaptor module!

The seller should tell this to the people and not only write "sell as is"!

I have asked him by mail also if the chesscomputer is actually working like displayed - he said yes would work without any problems.

Might there really be a possible derivation from the 'cursor based' keyboard?



Michael,

there are no 'derivations' from the cursor based keyboard module as far as I know.

But I think the unit will work as displayed on the auction pictures, because the MM2 (or B&P or whatever it is) will simply pay no attention to the third module (which actually does nothing unless you plug in your power supply right into the jack of the module).

All the best,

Christian

I have contacted the owner and he confirmed that the computer is offered exactly as pictured. He says he will change the description - strange indeed ?!


Welcome Michael!

At least you got a response from him....maybe my question was too agressive

Hope no one falls for it.


If it is a trick I would consider it as a bad one, that's for sure.
But maybe it is just an error...I will wait for the answer of the seller...

Very naughty, even i can tell that's not a Vancouver set  .

As mike says that user has been very active on E-bay recently buying and selling chess computers. Hope no one falls for it.

Well spotted Christian. I only flicked passed this one and did not notice.

This seller ID has only been active 5 weeks and has already got 44 feedbacks with, no doubt, plenty in the pipeline. They have been active selling and bidding on chess computer items.

Perhaps they should know the difference between a power module with Vancouver written on it and a Mephisto Modular Vancouver? The program module looks like a MMI.

It will be interesting to see what happens.

Best regards
Mike

I never saw a Vancouver like this...
