Microprofessor MPF-II

Post by simoni » Wed Oct 18, 2017 7:14 pm

Is there anyone on the forum who collects Multitech Microprofessor computers? I recently got 2 brand-new in box MPF-IIs. I probably paid too much for them, but they were too nice to pass up :)

I'm wondering what such a thing is actually worth (these machines are still sealed in the original packaging); seen a few used/battered ones on ebay, but not a completely new one... I'm also interested to see if I'm all alone in thinking that they are cool :D I have the Z80 based MPF-I as well.

Don't know about the MPF-II, as it was less popular I believe.

But the MPF-I is still made and for sale, if you have got £225 burning a hole in your pocket. They are sold and supported by Flite.

I have the MPF-I also (an original one) - complete with printer, eprom programmer and sound card. It's a fun board to play with. The MPF-II is harder to find as it was less popular; also, I don't think that many were available in the UK. The MPF-II is an Apple II clone though - one of the first clones made.

Mark,

I was offered SIX MPF-I Z-80 Trainers in approx 1997 while on a course.
They just wanted me to take them away at no cost as they had been unused, just sitting on top of cupboards for years!
I was in a downsizing mode at the time and, even though they would have taken up very little room,
I said 'NO thank you', I came to regret this :cry:
