I have an old Tandberg TDV 2324 CP/M computer manufactured in Norway in 1976 or so. I've tried to sell it cheaply but for some reason nobody seems to want it. smile

If anyone is interested in emulating it I'm offering it for free if you pick it up in Stockholm, Sweden.

This is what I know about it:
* Z80 CPU
* 32 KB RAM
* 4 or 8 MB harddrive
* builtin modem
* Dual 8" disk drives
* Green monochrome monitor

There are lots of 8" diskettes, among other thing original, boxed versions of Microsoft MultiPlan, COBOL, FORTRAN and BASIC compilers for CP/M.

There are a few pictures here:

Please tell me if you're interested.

BTW, even if you aren't going to write an emulator for it, the offer still stands as long as you promise to take care of it and not throw it away. This baby is rare.

That would be kind of awesome given the boxed Micro-Soft stuff. Any devs or readers near Stockholm? smile

Well, I live in Stockholm and have space for it, and am very interested in it personally. However, I am not able to do anything emulation related. What is needed in order to emulate it? I could probably dump floppies and harddrives.

"I could probably dump floppies and harddrives."
Or maybe I spoke too soon here, given the age of the hardware.

Anyway, I am willing to pick it up and do anything within my abilities to assist in emulating it.

Well, maybe you can take the machine and send the ROMs/Disks to someone who can dump them? That should be way cheaper than sending the whole machine.

Will be not easy if the ROMs are unsocket.

In my experience the older the hardware the more likely the chips are to be socketed...

This can be, the hardware was expensive enough at this time. smile

Sure, I can definitely send anything removable and dumpable.
