I'm interested in the working electron (with faulty P key) - this takes me right back, as my first saturday job occasionally involved repairing electron keys when the shop was truly quiet :D

I'm in Leeds, so would be happy to collect.

Please work out who is next in line :D : I think it's merlin, but it depends what he's after.
