I bought my Telestrat for 450Eu, that price seems about right to me .. although mine came with more ROM cartridges and a disk drive, though ..

I've just found that on ebay:

http://www.ebay.fr/itm/CARTE-ORDINATEUR ... SwPc9WvOuo

This one is really unusual, but if the bidding does goes to crazy I will try to get this one as I will need a telestrat for testing my projects, so please don't bid on that one, thanks!

(or bid only if you could propose me a Telestrat for a "normal" price)

Cheers :)

What is this exactly? A prototype of a Telestrat, being only the motherboard that should be connected to an Atmos in order to work? I am curious about how does it work, then...

I think it's just a normal telestrat, without the case, and since the keyboard is the same the guy just plugged a long flat cable between the motherboard and the atmos keyboard :)

One of the reasons may have been that this machine was used as a Telematic server, and it was more practical to have the motherboard out of the case. Just thinking out loud.

Makes perfect sense. The flat cable does not get out of the expansion slot and it is not wide enough. Thanks.

Indeed, it's normal Telestrat board and the Atmos is just the cover (no bottom red part) with keyboard.
The 40-pin socket is for small add-on pcb which is obviously missing.

Comparing with the pics here http://www.defence-force.org/computing/ ... therboard/ it seems that the second VIA is missing? and also the flat cable that connects next to it?
