View Full Version : Sold Acorn Archimedes 3020, internal HDD, 2x Joypads & pile of games.

I'm looking to sell my Acorn Archimedes 3020.
She's a solid, reliable performer and has featured at many shows working flawlessly throughout the weekend.
Cosmetically it is fair for it's age. It has been etched on the left hand side, upper face of the case with a serial number presumably from it's days serving the public.

I have fitted an internal CF Card to the IDE port and it works very well with many games installed to run directly from the drive itself.

I am also including the Joypads I modified myself that run off the parallel port allowing you to control most games with them rather than the keyboard. The Drivers for the joypads are on the hard drive itself, and only require you to activate them before playing your game.

It also includes the games listed below alongside a stack of demo discs many of which include full games such as Elite (now installed on the hard disc).
Boxed games include:

Cannon Fodder
Chuck Rock
Saloon Cars Deluxe (Archie exclusive)
Enter the Realm (Archie exclusive)

Because of the logistics, I am not including the monitor in the sale, but it is available if you wish to pick it up yourself.

I'm looking for 120 or near offer, plus P&P.

Just so everyone knows, I have been a bit surprised by how many of my items have received interest already, and am also working a couple of awkward shifts at the moment so am doing my best to get things packaged up to weigh and get accurate shipping quotes. I will let the first in lines for all my items know as soon as possible over the next day or two, and will get quotes for others as I get to them in line.
Thank you all for your patience.
