Hi!

as promised - its time for me to start preorder on ultimate expansion

to sum it up - its a 1mb memory module containing 4 OS slots, basic, missle command (or any other 8k game) for xegs, and sparta dos x with RTC module
all of above is flashable, and if some features are not needed - can be disabled by setup program

I also want to thank to DLT team for their work on SDX and porting SDX to Ultimate1MB
also for RTC drivers for SDX
and Hias, for his setup utility for easy configuration of Ultimate1MB module (this part hasn't been written yet, because I have to send Hias his Ultimate1MB board)

Ultimate1MB was designed to fit in any XL/XE computer, including 1200XL and XEGS - there are no versions as such, the only diffrence might be with lenght of ribbon cables it connects to motherboard

price is estimated on $56 (160pln) and should stay there

i need at least 25 boards to start production run

one thing more is to choose manufacturer of PCB
there are two options
- cheap one - not that bad, but certainly won't survive any repairs if come to such
- quality one - as seen on vbxe boards, comes with electrical test from pcb house, and can withstand much more than the above

diffrence in price shouldn't be more than few $(4-5 at most per board), and certainly ease my life during the assembly if going for quality one, but everyone has to go for this option (or at least majority)

preorder will close with end of march

I'm in. This will replace the 32in1 and RAM320 I've currently got in my VBXE 800XL... those can then be reassigned to another machine.

I take one for my 800XL that already has a VBXE upgrade waiting to be installed.
I voted for the HQ board.

The only thing missing then from that 800XL would be the SoundBoard + IO board (hint, hint :P)

Hi-
Two, please. (HQ)

edit: If the ribbon cables are of a different length, please make them both the longer style, so I can move the upgrade, if necessary. Thanks.

I am for sure in for 2 and may add a possible 3 for a spare. I also vote for the HQ board.

Awesome Work, I am also interested in the Sound and IO boards as others have hinted about.;)
