Hi Ismenio, 

Thanks for this - glad its not just me in the dark!

We had a poll a while back asking the members how many would have upgraded their CC1 at the time. Maybe we should revisit that and see what results we would get today



I have missed this - at the time I think I would have upgraded the CC1 but now, no! 

Best wishes

Chris

Chris,

Those are very interesting questions that I have wondered about myself. I don't know the answer to them and I could especulate I guess. Even the red sticker is something interesting to me. I bought my CC3 from someone on your side of the pond and it didn't have the  red sticker. And he was the original owner.

Later I saw another one sold on eBay and the auction was in UK and it also didn't have the red sticker on the box.

All this mistery makes it more interesting doesn't it?

We had a poll a while back asking the members how many would have upgraded their CC1 at the time. Maybe we should revisit that and see what results we would get today

Hi Mike 

Congratulations - this looks in excellent condition!    pity there is only a single (though mint!) set of pieces 

Your post gives me the opportunity of asking a couple of elementary questions that I have been thinking over for a while:

I know there is some debate about the numbers of CC1s upgraded to CC3 but what did this upgrade involve? Following upgrade was the same CC1 unit returned with a new ROM and new keyboard to address the co-ordinate issue or was a new computer simply shipped? Did the upgrade require all elements to be returned (eg instruction manual/packaging etc)?

Also, aside from the box with sticker (which I don't have) how do you tell if your CC3 is an upgraded CC1 or an original CC3?

Puzzled regards


Chris

Back to the old topic of upgraded Chess Challengers, because this CC3 turned up today.



Apart from some wear to the box you could call it new. The pieces look like they have never been opened or the power cord unravelled.

This one is of interest in the old "how many CC1s were upgraded" debate because it may have been a CC1, but is now a CC3 in a CC3 box with the red 3 levels sticker. Could this little Fidelity sticker be connected with the upgrading? Usually they have only the serial number added.



If it is an upgraded CC1 then there are reasons to believe that it was sent back unsold to Fidelity by a retail store rather than a customer. Eventually it was sold by J.C.Penny for $129.99.

Mike
