MC-10 - Very Cool Tiny Computer

I bought my MC-10 new from RS before they closed the line out. Originally, I was going to try to figure out how to make a briefcase computer system out of it, but that never happened. I'm glad I saved it though.

My current setup is:

MC-10
MCX-128 Memory Upgrade
Ed's Composite Video Upgrade

Since the MCX-128 lets you connect to an Emcee server, I want to setup a PC to act as a server for it. I've texted with Both Windows 10 and MacOS X and it works great, I just don't want to run wires across the room for that as I could use a PC close by for the MC-10 and CoCos. Like having a Disk Drive for the MC-10...Sorry folks, I don't get any joy from loading / saving to/from cassette for the sake of reminiscing or nostalgia. I have better things to do with my time than wait...the programs still run the same and the experience is the same.

It really is an amazing little machine for what it does. I'm not quite sure what all I'll do with it, but it is cool just the same.

I have two, in box, and I think they both work, I got the MCX-128 which I haven't even opened yet, and the 3D printed case, also which hasn't been opened.
I think they are neat machines, but my desk real estate is very minimal, so those will be saved for rainy days, but I'm glad I got a few, and some good deals on them.
