Excellent haul there Wim,

Is that a Spectravideo machine in there, I also see a Tandy portable, a BBC master, and Apple IIe, Toshiba MSX and I presume a C64 or Vic20 as there is a commie floppy drive.....

I see you also got an Enterprise manual, did you get the computer with it as they are fairly uncommon.

Cheers.

Phill.

It's in the fifth picture.
Edit: actually, that seems to be something else with green and red keys...

I don't think we have any of those German releases archived. We have BBC German versions of some but not Electron.

I met someone a few years ago which doesn't care about just making money, for him it's far more important to make and see happy people which normally can't afford things like this...

(He is reducing his collection...)

If you trade each computer for a £10 banknote then you have enough banknotes to visit the next ABUG meeting :lol:

In a way, it's sad to see all this stuff. So many goodies the rest of the population are totally oblivious to again.

There's not much wrong with new games that can't be fixed but I think more people should go retro, of any era. Enough people may be weaned off what the gamer community is complaining about now, like high prices, jaded concepts, pay-to-win, DRM, pay-again-to-just-download-the-completed-code and all else.
