    I purchased an A3020 from Bas about a year ago.

    I've had a play with it and although it was fun I've decided it's not for me.

    If you're interested in it drop me a PM and I'll sort out the pictures etc.

    These machines just remind me of computer club at school, oh those were the days, that hour lunchtime would flyby and everyone wanting the Stunt racer 2000 disks

    I'm slowly restoring a RiscPC I hope that game still works on these

    thanks davideo for the pics, replied to your PM that I will think overnight on this great machine.

    I think the Tesco "Computers for Schools" vouchers was one reason why the Acorn ended up everywhere and certainly where I went. I remember the begging letters from the Headmaster for parents to get every voucher they possibly could! I did also start out on the BBC Master at Primary school, might dip into that scene too one day.
