The Coleco ADAM came in two forms. You could buy the complete system, or, if you already owned a ColecoVision game system, you could buy an add-on for it. The system had some nice features, namely:
Mass storage devices cost extra for other systems of the time. Plus, the ADAM tape format actually kept a sort of directory in the middle of the tape, allowing for fairly quick retrieval of information. Printers were typically an extra cost as well. Of course, the system had it's bad points:
So, overall, it's a pretty crankin' system.
The ADAM was only produced for 2 years. I had thought that it just disappeared after that, but I was wrong. There's a thriving ADAM cult. There is even an annual ADAM convention. The next one is July 15-18, 1999. See the Official ADAMCON Homepage on Bob Slopsema's Adam site for more details.
