[Sold] Data General Dasher d200
« on: Wed, 31 January 2018, 18:46:55 »
The Data General nut that I am, I have "data general dasher" as a saved search on ebay. Look what came up last night :D

https://www.ebay.com/itm/Vintage-Data-General-Dasher-D200-Terminal-Model-6131A-Keyboard/183045694341?hash=item2a9e5fa385:g:~mcAAOSw8vNacPKE

Took all my will-power not to buy one myself, and there were 3 when it was listed. 2 have already been bought. Maybe someone else here can snag it.

This little number arrived today. Not sure if anyone has converted one of these to USB yet. The switches feel awful which means all new foam.

That does look great, not sure how usable the layout is though...

Good luck getting it working!

Who cares? A board like that, you can put it on a keeb shrine and just admire it as you walk by.

Owch! So probably no shipping charge either, then. I see they've also listed this Model F-XT tho:








Needs a bit of cleaning up (and some new cork feet, from sheet cork you can get at the dollar store). But hey, it's a Model F. These are averaging around $100 now, and they're asking $89.99 OBO—so if you could get them down to $70 with free pickup, that'd be a nice deal. If you wanted one, of course.
