BBC Master Compact

How much is one of these worth fully working with MOS 5.10, Utils 1.10, Advanced DFS 2.10, Exmon 1.0a, Advanced Disc Toolkit 2.00, and Wordwise-Plus 1.49?

Hi, welcome to the forum!

The best guide is the eBay sold prices, but it really depends on the day an how much someone wants one. They are rarer than other BBC machines. The ROM images in it won't make any real difference to the value, but having the PSU/disk drive unit will.

You should be looking at least 100 - 150 dependant on its condition.
As with ebay its pretty random, I've picked them up for less than 100 but recently they have been > 150 just depends.
Hardware on ebay seems to go round in cycles. Compacts tend to keep their value though as they are much rarer than the other models.
