Re: Elk ACP3 and ACP4 Floppy Interface

Also the AP4 has 16k of Ram onboard as workspace so it keeps page at E00, same as a cassette system, the AP3 pushes Page up to 1D00, same as the Plus 3, which is a good 3k . So you have less user Ram with the Plus 3 / AP3.

You had to disable the flashing cursor ? VDU 23 or something.
