Unknow Acorn User Manual

Post by roland » Thu May 16, 2019 5:44 pm

In the legacy of my Atomic friend Guido, who passed away a few months ago, I found this Acorn user manual. My guess is that is pre-Atom, maybe a System manual? I didn't read it completely yet but I didn't see for what computer is was written.

It's for the Acorn System 1, and can be found at http://chrisacorns.computinghistory.org ... puter.html

Was there a System 1 to go with it?

Unfortunately there was no System 1 included. I don't recall that Guido had a System 1 so I was very surprised that he had an original manual.
