Wow, a Pippin. I suspect it’s the Bandai @World?

yep! and the Panasonic M2 is a development kit model………sadly due to the fact there are only I think 3 non dev kit models of the M2 I had to get a dev kit one but its still cool!

I’d like to get a Pippin too one day. But they’re so rare and expensive (oh look here’s a rare black one from Japan, but the shipping is so expensive it’s really only for hardcore collectors: http://cgi.ebay.com/APPLE-BANDAI-PIPPIN-WORLD-BLACK-EDITION_W0QQitemZ250437805890QQihZ015QQcategoryZ139971QQssPageNameZWDVWQQrdZ1QQcmdZViewItem ), and considering it’s just a Macintosh computer in disguise, makes you wonder if it’s really worth it. But it sure was innovative for its time. Compare it to the Xbox 360, for example. Do you see any similarities?

Whoah holy BEEP that is expensive shipping.

by the by what is the difference between @world and @mark?

I think that @World refers to the console itself, and @Mark was the brand it belonged to, along with the FloppyDock, keyboard/tablet, controllers, modems, and other accessories.
