Well it is a Coleco Adam . . . . and if it has a flopy drive and the
printer then it migh be worth a few bucks -- if not it really isn't worth
anything except as a paperweight. The data tapes have to be pre-formatted,
and I don't know if that is possible on the bare Adam.

FWIW, Adam Osborne was the guy who did the Osborne 1 and the Exec, two early
luggables. Now they are useable after a fashion, as they are cp/m machines.
