Worth Taking a Look At

Forum rules
You're welcome to trade Acorn-related stuff with other forum members here - the rule of thumb to follow when trading, is that items or services offered should be of interest to our Acorn community. Do NOT use multiple accounts - please trade with your regular (and only) forum account. If you're giving items away, please make it clear if you would be unhappy with the recipient selling on some or all of the items. Similarly, please ensure that the giver is comfortable with you re-selling items you have accepted as a gift. We cannot be held responsible for what happens in these trading forums or for deals done via PM. This must be done at your own risk. If you aren't comfortable with this - make the trade via an alternative site which can apply safeguards of their own. Be sensible - if someone approaches you to trade via PM who is not posting in the public forums, this may be a sign that they are not entirely what they seem. Please report it to the moderators if you receive an unsolicited message from anyone suspicious, so that it can be investigated and hopefully stop anyone being taken advantage of. This forum is not for advertising items you have for sale on ebay or other third party marketplaces. You can refer to a Buy-It-Now item if you're also making it available direct to forum users.

My Other Adelaide A3010 (never having seen a non-Adelaide one, what's that called, Charlotte, Alexandra, Caroline of Brunswick?) is 01-AGB15-1020779.

What's the story behind having the wrong box, then? 01-AGB15-1010699 ... that's neither of your A3010s.

Oh yes, I don't think I'd ever noticed that before! It has the computer serial number on the mouse though!

I don't think I can find out now. It was given to me by a nice lady where I was working at the time, probably as a result of one of my regular rambles about how the BBC Micro was infinitely superior to any of the codswallop masquerading as a "computer" laying about around the office could ever be. I've got an Acorn, she said, and you can have it. It came as the boxed A3010 Family Pack with the separate Cadbury's (sadly from the days long after the possessive noun in a company name ceased to be used) carrier bag containing the printer etc. I very much doubt she ever had two A3010 and mixed them up in the wrong boxes. Could have been exchanged after a fault maybe I suppose. Or does the box - or the actual Family Pack collection - have its own separate serial number?

Developing the theme that in the World According to Acorn, cardboard boxes can have their own serial numbers, shurely this 8"x6"x4" box is far, far too big for just one Master Econet module?

It did for the A3000, but for the A3010 the computer/box/pack serial numbers should all be the same I believe. So probably an exchange or some other dealer shenanigans.

That's fun. Could perhaps have been a box of modules, and they just slapped the serial of one of them on the box?
Did Master modules come with instruction books? Must have had a space for the ANFS ROM I guess? Cables? Other tat that could have been a reason to puff-up the packaging?

Could be, I don't believe I've ever seen an original packaged ADF10 module, but I have got several boxed A3020/A4000 ones, which would probably fit 6 to a box of that size.

Re: the A3010 I will see if I can contact the previous owner and find out more. I don't recall anything being said about exchanges/swaps etc. but there again anything that may have been being said to me in the work car park when I received it was drowned out by the abject disappointment that this wonderful Acorn I was being given turned out to be an A3010!

No, that's what I would exchange it for now. I think I thought I was getting an A3000 or A3020.

BeebMaster's Adelaide is 01-AGB15-1010814
AndyMc1280's Adelaide is 01-AGB15-1011147 (Assuming this is the original case!)

It should be, bottom half anyway! - I only replaced the keyboard and top case, wanted to keep the SN with it even though the lower half was pretty brown.

Indeed it does. That's a lot to pay for a ROM though. :?

True. But add an SD card reader to the mix for a few quid and it would easily sell for around £150 again I would imagine.

I had Plotmate! Used for all my designs - The Plotter went to someone on this Forum, some time ago. I still have some discs - I'll dig them out and see what's there.

There's a rom chip wedged between the 2MB memory expansion and the case.

The seller sent me these by the way. You can see a ROM
hidden inside there too.
