well, I don't think its actually a prototype, it is just an early production unit that was shipped out to devs before the FCC compliance testing was done. It is unit 966, at least I think it is given the serial number.

Congrats on snagging a BeBox Helf Very Happy

It is high on my list of machines to acquire, but just have not had the funds to grab any of the recent ones for sale.

yeah, the prices are insane. I got lucky with this one. A guy I know that owned two popped up a few weeks ago and offered me this one. i didn't have the money until friday when someone contacted me and bought my octane2's V12 graphics card.

I think all of them have the not FCC approved sticker, but maybe the 133s do. I remember a post (.plan? Be dev newsletter?) from Joe Palmer talking about having the BeBox FCC tested. None of these were ever offered for retail sale - they were only sold through the dev program (or, after they closed, some at auction).

ADDITION:

Hey, lookie there - search for "FCC testing" on this page:
