From what I can remember, I got this little fella around 2000 or 2001 when I was working in an electronics shop from the same guy that I got the Cromemco Z-1 from. It had been "beefed up" from it's original 256 bytes of RAM to a whopping 768. It also sports an RS-232 serial port and a monitor program in ROM so one doesn't have to use the switches to program the thing. I also remember, because of the expansion, that the inside is a rats nest of wire. I plan to clean it up eventually.
