Up for sale here is a real gem for any vintage computing aficionado: this is not the “blue box” standalone computer, nor is it the “red box EM3” computer… this is THE granddaddy of them, the big boy, the king of the ADAM lineup, THE ColecoVision ADAM Combination Family Computer with its original box and contents and in all of its glory!

There is so very little information about this specific system online that’s it is very tough to even describe what this is if talking technical terms. So, to make this very simple and easy, this specific home computer was (supposedly)released near the end of the Adam Computer’s lifespan and was a bundle that was put together to sell off excess stock. Original Adam’s contained only the standalone computer and printer and no ColecoVision. A second iteration came out that contained what came to be known as the Expansion Model #3 that required a ColecoVision console to run. The ColecoVision console was not included with that set. And finally, a third variation of the system debuted as the company started to lose its stock in the market: this “Combination Computer” presumably came to be highly theorized as a last ditch attempt by the company to sell all of its remaining hardware in one large and convenient package for the consumer.
