Rare Camputers Lynx 48k
« on: August 05, 2010, 01:57:46 PM »
Now when the title reads 'Rare' most people will think 'yeah, sure' but for once this is a genuinely rare machine, search on ebay and see how many you can find.

Here is what's included

Camputers Lynx 48k Computer
Original Lynx PSU
User Manual
Tape loading lead
RF Lead
Brand New (never been applied) Camputers Lynx case badge (this has to be rare on it's own !)


This item has been fully tested, as I was playing 'Mazeman' on it a few nights ago, it comes with the bottom poly (top is just a square of Polystyrene that sits in a recess on the bottom poly), and all the required cables, although the standard RF cable is OK, I always had problems tuning in my Sony CRT TV using it, but you can get a great rock solid picture if you can talk Phu into making up a scart lead like I did   :D

Also the case badge can be seen in the pics, it is loose and falls off easily, hence the reason for including a replacement (NEW) badge.

These machines rarely come up for sale, and I have seen them sell for in excess of £200 for a boxed example.

Current asking price for this working example is £85 + P&P (please note the Mazeman game is not included)

Here's a few pics

Nice machine you have there Stu. Rare machine indeed and at that price good value.
Hope it goes to a good home.

Nice - you dont see too many of these about. Any good games or demos around for the machine or is it a bit of an Oric?

Not a massive amount of software around for it, I personally have approx 12 original titles, seen a few tape image files knocking about on the internet, will have to try and compile them altogether !!

Bit of a long shot but I don't suppose the badge is still for sale?...

If you wouldn't mind asking... Ideally, I'd like a Lynx96 badge as my 96K Lynx came minus a badge.

I'm away this weekend, so you may need to give me a nudge, as I have a terrible memory, don't worry about chasing me for this  :)
