well i got 2 x these very hard to get units and one looks like and original Spectravideo model (number-30) made, the other is badged the company that made them for Spectravideo (Bondwell when they took them over). the company was called " Franken Computers " so 1 has Spectravideo on and other Fraken Computers both say SVI-808. the 2nd Frankin one is Number-53 made.. but both dont boot up and i had a bit of a warning on a blog of the original owners that they had power issues.
