Please excuse these not being scans, I did my best to take photos with my iPhone.









Man, I remember the first page of that article with the Keith Courage screenshots.

I like the green/yellow power switches on the systems and the KC cover has a gradient background  :bonkthis:

I wonder if they needed to reduce the number of colors in the final print versions of the manual to save on costs

Yeah, strange they made the final cover so dark too, no meteor in this one.

This must be one early Turbo, it looks like its still using the smaller controller plugs from the PCE and the cord looks longer.

The yellow power switches were the only thing I noticed, a missed the KC cover change.
