Blog post states: All chip datecodes are from the end of 1984; only one of them is dated in the first week of 1985. So we can date this board around the first months of 1985.

401 errors for the dropbox preview links. But that aside, an ad appearing in a given year doesn't mean it was released that year, it could have been released in an earlier year, but given the lead time on print magazines ads also got printed for products before they were launched in cases where production/shipping slipped but the ads had already been scheduled.

I've seen full page ads for computers, only to be followed up months later with an apology that it's been cancelled. I'd use dates on ads as a guide only, not as gospel.

I did find this Arcadia 2001 clone, Tchibo Tele-Fever on eBay

I asked the seller "what year did this system launch?" the answer 1986.

In what universe is a random eBay seller some sort of reliable indicator of when something was released?
