pagetable.com has posted extensive pictures of prototype Commodore 232 and 264 Computers.
The C-232 and C-264 were two1 of the planned models of the TED series, but neither shipped. The C-264 became the Plus/4, with productivity software pre-installed in ROM, and the low-lost C-232 was replaced by the even lower-cost C16 and C116 models.
The C-232 board (ASSY NO 250439, PCB NO 251728REV3) is missing the ACIA for the RS232 port (like the C16/C116), but has two sockets for the optional function ROM chips (16 KB each). On the Plus/4, the function ROM contained the “3-plus-1” productivity software. Note the heatsink on the TED chip, which Commodore should have installed on all TED-series machines.
The board of the C-264 is basically a Plus/4 board. It carries the same ASSY NO 310163. It too is missing the function ROM chips.
