And now I see the same seller has listed another one with the exact same pictures and description. I'm sure it's possible that they actually do have more than one, but I sure hope the one you got is an original.

I just got it in the mail the other day.  I'm fairly certain that it is original. It looks and smells old, to be quite honest. It has that odor that an old magazine gets when left in a basement or attic. 

The paper stock is quite thick, and is shiny, not porous like copy or printer paper. It looks original to me, this is actually the third one that I have seen this seller selling. 

 

I'll make some scans soon and post them.  Most of the ads are ones we have all seen before.  An interesting one is an advertisement for "Wild Western."  There are also numerous different fonts for the word "Colecovision" that stores could have used in their advertisements. I'll try to post them soon....

I just took another  good look at the one for sale now...it is a different book then the one that I own.  This one has the portable arcades in it and mine does not.  

I'm not going to have to buy another one now am I?   :mad:

Hello Coleco-Gurus!

 

I would love to buy a Coleco-Adam-Computer, but I only know ebay as a source, to find one of those holy grails.
Is there a good vintage-retro-computer-shop that would be recommendable...or is there a a collector here in this community, who would sell one of his second-adam?

greetings from austria

You might have better luck posting this in the Wanted subforum of the Marketplace here.

Beware of Ebay because so far I have bought 2 and both have severe issues because the owners have no clue and description can be accurate AND misleading at the same time.

One was "Never Used" but the guy forgot to mention that it did not come with the manuals and I will never buy anything from Fuds Gaming ever again.  It WAS never used but when I tested it the capacitors blew up in my face upon first use.

The second one I bought as a development unit and has two Digital Data Drives both with the wheels melted and frozen.

So in reality, save your desk space and emulate...Buy from a collector on Atari Age or wait for a device like Collectorvision but then again I have no clue if Collectorvision will even use ADAM images.

Send MilliV a PM to see if he has a complete Adam system available. You can also reach him thru the Coleco Adam Facebook page... William Hicks.
