Acorn Atom

Post by level9fan » Sun Feb 04, 2007 7:33 pm

The Acorn Atom was a bit before my time but I notice there's one
for sale on ebay. Does anyone know how rare these little beasts are
(it's currently £90 with 7 days to go) ?

I had a look at the advert on eBay. This has got to be in one of the best conditions I've ever seen an Acorn Atom.

I used to have an Acorn Atom (around 1987-8 ), but it never really got much use. I don't think I could justify paying £90+ for one, even if it does look like brand new. If you happen to be an avid collector of retro computers then it could be a different story.

As for rarity I would have to say that I don't really know, but I imagine that they don't come up too often.

Kind regards,

Francis.
