    They had another which had a sliding front to reveal the Mega Drive slot. I think it was light grey.

        That’s right! It’s referenced in the video as well (and from memory Neil also mentioned it in a previous video, but I wouldn’t be able to link to it tbf)

    It’s Retro Man Cave! I had no idea he had a new name, no wonder I have not seen him in such a long time!

      The channel has been renamed as “RMC - The Cave” at least two or three years ago. Neil was already shortening the channel name into RMC in his videos, so to him this was a fairly easy decision to make. The main reason to do the change in the first place, is that the “Man Cave” part was originally a joke from his wife (a sign above the door to his hobby space) and not entirely fitting a channel that is now made (semi)-professionally in a space outside the house. He even has a computing museum nowadays so he wants to do all this without jokes that could be misinterpreted without context.

    Was not expecting everything on one board like that. It probably would have been easier to just package a PC and Megadrive more or less separate with a switch between them. Sega really put some work into that.

      That’s exactly what the Amstrad version was that was released in the UK. A 386 PC with a MegaDrive on an extension card.

    Another great video from Neil. I will visit the museum one day. That is a beautiful looking machine, especially the keyboard. I was very surprised to find out it was only a 286.
