Hi

This is an Apricot F1 (possibly F1e, it's branded f1 but has 256k ram from the bootup screen).

It boots but in the last 5 years since I've used it the floppy drive mechanism has got rather sticky and the eject button/ disk mech seems to be in need of lubrication. I cant get a disk in although I can see it spin up, I dont want to force it. Also the yellowing has got worse, it's in need a little retrobrite. Apart from that there's a nick on the screen bezel and another on the front panel, else looks vgc.

Has an original greenscreen (although the machine is colour), a big set of manuals and 12 floppies inc Supercalc, Superwriter, MS-DOS boot, utils, games (?), none originals however.

Mouse Trackball thing, & keyboard -which seems to have a sticky key.

I note it has a 128mb card in the expansion slot. More info:

and support materials inc:

FYI I downloaded 6mb of images a few years back, can pass that on- I've not had time to clean the drive so I can't vouch for more than what's in the pics or if it boots any further. I hope it just needs a clean and a little new love and attention that I can't give it.

£20 plus carriage, Paypal gift only, (UK only I think, as it's weighty).

Any questions please ask. Iain

Gents, to keep things simple I'll close this thread. Please keep all correspondence in the Recycle bin. :)
