Acorn BBC Model B Computer. Good working order, good physical condition. Some yellowing. Powered direct from the double disk drive unit (no internal PSU). Very small crack the thin plastic sheet near the spacebar.
Microvitec CUB 1451 Colour CRT Monitor. Good working order. This is the 653x585 resolution model. Worth 100 on its own.
Torch Z80 Disk Pack, 2 x 5.25" disk drive unit. Disk drives do work, but are intermittent, so these need cleaning and servicing to improve operation. This unit provides power direct to the BBC. PSU fitted with some new capacitors.
Torch Z80 Communicator Card fitted internally within the BBC. Provides a Zilog Z80 Processor and the CPN (CP/M) operating system in addition to the standard Acorn Basic OS.
Wooden desk unit to support the disk drive unit and the monitor over the BBC Computer, which makes it a neat setup which fits together perfectly. All in retro woodgrain chipboard splendour....

Postage and delivery:

This is a very large and very heavy set up. I do not recommend that it be posted due to damage risk. It would occupy three large boxes and cost a lot to post. I will deliver for free, up to 100 miles from Swansea, South Wales, which includes the following places:

All of South and Mid Wales

Please do not buy this expecting full free delivery to areas outside this distance, unless you can drive to meet at one of the above points

This is a terrific item and I want to make sure it gets to the next owner in good shape.

Over 40 photos of the machine, extras and insides can be found in the link: https://www.dropbox.com/sh/ss1impxqb1wy1be/AACTxf_Z40l7gHefkHsHAsJEa?dl=0

Ok, but it is highly unlikely this lot can be posted to the US, if that is where you are based.
