Finally, a Drean Commodore 64c

As a kid, I always avoided the Drean Commodore. I didn’t like them because they were not compatible with the NTSC software.

As an adult, I really wanted one basically because I’m from Argentina, and the Drean was produced in Argentina. And I want to make sure that all the software that I develop works on a Drean.

And in my lastest trip to Argentina I was able to get one🙂 The condition of the computer is Ok, neither great nor terrible. It works, although I need to do more tests. Here are some photos:

Playing Popeye. Sound and video work Ok.

Keyboard, bottom part. With the Drean sticker
Uses a 6581R4 sid chip. All Dreans, including the 64C used 6581 chips.
Uses a 326298 Rev A board
Ugly patch!
Notice the rounded LED

And here you have detailed information about the Dreans (in Spanish):
