BBC Computer – 30th Anniversary

BBC Micro Computer imageThis is scary, but I used to sell these at Boans in Perth !

From memory they sold for around $1000 +

There were two models – Model-A with 32k or 64k & the Model-B with 64k or 128k
(Yes that’s Kilobytes not Megs !!!!  )

No hard drives back then, just floppy drives… 

They were aimed at the Educational market & subsequently sold to mainly schools.

They were made by Acorn Computers who also produced an early personal computer called the Electron that competed against Clive Sinclairs computers, such as the ZX80/81 and Spectrum.
