  1. I have what might as well be a brand new 600XL mint in box, still it's natural white as if being opened for the first time 30 years ago. Still wrapped in the plastic, too. I haven't tested it out yet because I actually don't have a TV it can hook into, so I may do a video when I finally do of what that'll be like. That said, I'm more curious about how long the 5.25 disks last. I picked up a collectors edition of H2G2 with all the nifty swag included, and again, until I get everything hooked up, I have no way of knowing. But if it (the disk) doesn't work, I still have my precious relic anyhow.
  2. I was born a little too late to be able to share any pictures like this, so these are really cool to see, pictures of back when these guys were new. Makes me a little envious to be honest, the aesthetics are so on point, and that's just how it naturally was back then.
  3. Ah, that's still alright, I mod gameboys so I'm not a total stranger to light soldering.
  4. Thank you all for the info~! I'll keep checking in for that solder-free 512K upgrade as it seems to be out of stock right now. So am I correct in assuming that once I get my 16K upgraded to (at least) 64K my 600XL will be able to run most programs an 800XL or XEGM would?
  5. Did anyone every try this and confirm it? https://lotharek.pl/productdetail.php?id=232 I recently found a brand new 600xl, mint in box, I suspect never been used or even touched because the computer is still wrapped in plastic, and all the manuals and promotional booklets are still in the box, too. I've been doing a LOT of reading up on these systems and I'm pretty hyped about getting to know them. There's 2 things I want to do with it that I've read so far: 1. upgrade the RAM to 64k of course 2. put in an AV jack output so I don't need a specific type of TV to hook up the devil pitchforks switchbox I've read up on the methods of how to upgrade the RAM here but if this piece linked above just does it in one go, wouldn't this be the simplest? With a computer that might as well be brand new, I don't want to risk anything.
