General Information

Extremely rare Prototype - one of four manufactured, only one known to exist today


The Microbee Gamma was heralded as the savior of Microbee, during a tumultuous time of increasing competition in the Australian PC Marketplace. 

Sadly, according to legend, R&D on this machine was the proverbial straw that broke the camels back, and saw Microbee come crashing down.

This particular machine is in poor shape, and seems to have been ratted for parts at some point in time. If anyone has any documentation, software, parts, or knows of a Gamma other than this one, please contact me! I would love to see this machine running again!

I have scanned all significant journals that mention the Microbee Gamma. The links indicated below are images, or zip files with multiple images. The reason for this machines fate is unclear. If anyone can fill in the gaps, I would appreciate it!
