£600 for a basic A440. Looks like it could even be Arthur. :lol:

I wasn't aware the 440 was ever sold without a winchester controller on the board, nevermind dual floppy. Something doesn't smell quite right there. Certainly wasn't sold with that mouse.

https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/333748389577
Hmm, very fishy, if it was an A440 it would have two BNC's on the back, that's an A3xx board.
Ah yeah, so the chance it has 4MB (as per 440) is quite low. Not clear enough photos to be completely sure it doesn't have an upgrade board, but wouldn't seem especially likely. It's a 310 with the wrong sticker on it. I don't even think that user guide is the correct era. Fairly sure it won't sell at that stupid price anyway.

It also looks like an IFEL backplane, didn't all A4xx machines come with backplanes?

Yep, exactly that - no high res video circuitry or HDD interface. That’s an A310 PCB running RISC OS 2 in an A310 box with an A310 keyboard, and an A440 badge...

...and the mouse is from an A4x0/1 or A3000...

The listing has now been updated to say A310. The serial numbers are now in the photos - 27-AKB15-1010512, so that makes it an early A310 I think - woo!

Acorn SCSI card just went for £132 :shock:

https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/324341976999

I know that they are one of the few SCSI podules that work with Risc iX but is that really what they are worth ? Am I being naive or tight ?

Just means that someone with deep pockets wants to try running Risc iX, will do it once, complain they can't get it to work properly, give up and move on and the SCSI card will sit on a shelf forevermore :)

Not that I'm cynical or anything :D

That is a lot of money for a piece of cardboard. In fact it is more than I paid for my Atom (on eBay) a year or so ago!

He's selling it on Amibay too at that price. I think this retro-stuff goes to people's heads sometimes...

10 available does stretch the credibility of them being new old stock aside from the dodgy looking label.

eBay does have a ‘report’ button...

Interesting it says "personal computer", I thought that was an IBM phrase... and Acorn were touting "home computer" at that time.
