Color Maximite 2 computer - $100  programed with BASIC...  ( arm based cpu )

Hello, I have the earlier version "Color Maximite" single board computer (from 2012)...fun to program in mostly generic Basic..800 by 600 VGA output, 8 colors. Memory SD as storage....

Now the latest version is coming out--Color Maximite 2.....  1024 by 768 VGA, 65,000 plus colors, Basic language operating system... (Just announced a demo upgrade with 3D basic programing!!  Support for WAV, "MOD" sounds, super fast graphics blits, sprites etc... 

Made in various countries- UK, Australia, Ger., US ..seems like it also has Rasp PI type lo cost programmable modules as add-ons....  nearly all local versions are approx. $100 (US or Euro).

I have ordered mine will be shipped after March 20th 2021~~ I will confirm my impressions when I receive it     (https://geoffg.net/maximite.html)

I bought the first one, nice little thing, I never done much with it though, just... Had a play! :)

Anyway, nice to see the original spurred a sequel, I could be tempted! :) hehehe

Yeah looks a fun little system.  I'm a fan of these simple computer systems that allow you to completely understand the hardware and code freely without fighting an overly complex Operating System and libraries.  I considered it but when the 2nd kickstarter for the ZX Spectrum Next came I went for that instead.
