No worries, it will be on eBay sonner than later, it's not collection, but speculation here, especially when it goes that high.

I'm really not going to sell it, because it is such a cool machine, but I have to say when the prices go high like that, things get a little difficult .. ;)

No, I didn't made any bids.
This 1.045 is really too much for me.

Does anyone have an idea of what the cards are for?

Apart from motherboards of course. Eprom programmer?

Yeah, indeed very good guess!
But besides the obvious large number LEDs the 8 chips have pretty unique footprint - PDIP-18,
which most likely means they are LM3914
and explains the 2x jumpers on the PCB used to select 'dot' or 'bar' mode :).
What still puzzles me is Why only 16 LEDs are used instead of 20 (as in LM3914 datasheet)?
Anyway... The same seller has more interesting items: Lot Oric - Microdisc - cartes électroniques - lecteur disquette.

Not sure if this is new, but 299 GBP is way too much for my taste for an Atmos... :?

ORIC TELESTRAT + Disc drive on eBay again. Who will guess the winning number this time? :).
But more interesting are the 3-inch floppy disks - take a closer look at their labels (in description at bottom of page)....
If only it were true ... CP/M for Oric :mrgreen:

Oooh.. I'd kill for CP/M for Oric! :). Would be really cool ...

Makes me want to get my Telestrat working. I have to get on that. ..

Hahaha... :lol:

Prices are mad, as usual... the Telestrat does not even work! And the Microdisc is probably a slave unit. And those CP/M disks... :lol:
Probably they are from an Amstrad computer and were re-used for this Oric or something... Or someone was thinking about building an external device with a Z80 just to run CP/M on the Oric, as other micros had. :D
