Alternate Universe Chinese Apple 130XE

Recommended Posts

Here is the plain CEC (not CEC-"Expansion")

 

http://finapple.hho.fi/finapple/index.php/2017/06/09/cec-i-china-education-computer-part-1/

 

There are two models that i am aware of (Apple II clones that is) made by the Shaanxi Province Computer Factory and Huaming Computer Co.
– CEC-I – made in beige and red colors
– CEC-E – made in beige color, more rare of the two.

 

6502, 1 mhz, 64k ram (2 x 64kx4), 32KB ROM (seems pretty big), PAL video.

 

Here's a white CEC-I from that same site:

Looks like the CEC-E Is CEC-I with additional disk / accessory ports on the back..

I'd like to see some of the crap from behind the iron curtain...

I'm assuming your jumping to what came from behind another communist country's curtain and aren't talking about China here...think tons of Sinclair Spectrum clones in ugly as F*CK cases. I've seen plenty on ebay in recent months/years. But from what I've seen from both Russia (USSR) and China, it's all clones of western country computers...Sinclair, Apple, IBM...nothing exists that is a unique Russian or Chinese engineered computer from the ground up, that I've ever seen, just clones. I'd like to see something totally original!

:) I.P. theft is a trademark of socialist (leaning or otherwise) and communist countries world wide..... attack of the clones! :)

It's some interesting stuff... now if we could get all the molds etc from them

Better than being repurposed for a piece of dental equipment I suppose.

 

Note the power specs, so would be for a PAL market. Given the box, Chinese characters on the ports and the 200-240V power specs I suspect it's likely domestic + Hong Kong (from what I gather they use 200V 50 Hz there).

I'd say a major difference between that dental equipment and the knock offs in some number of details....where when how who... the who involved in such cases...

 

say aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaahhhhh!

Wow pretty crazy ! You'd expect them to use direct copies of the molds instead of modifying them ?!?!?

 

It looks too narrow for an ST case but too wide for XE ?!?!

 

That keyboard actually LOOKS better than the XE.....maybe it IS better :D (not very unlikely)

 

One of the Sub-D 9 pins outputs indicates CGA. Wouldn't that hint into a PC clone instead of Apple ?

 

Crazy, I want one :D

BINGO!

 

I.P. Theft (or riding on Capitalism's wallet, in simpler terms) is their chosen path to their ultimate goal, which is projection of Communist and Socialist values and governance over the world.

 

I personally call the process "monetized falsehood". And countries like Africa, Latin America (and surprisingly significant parts of Europe) have been heavily infiltrated by this farce.
