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.

The Apple looks really nice, if only: a) I had the space, and b) I could have persuaded my wife not to beat me with it.

If I had the space I would be keeping it. :cry:

You would be safe from your wife unless she is REALLY strong. It is probably too heavy to pick up. :D

At least that is problem B sorted!

Electron Elite by Superior Software. Box and manual only - no cassette. Just the case and manual!

This does look nice on the shelf but I don’t have an elk!

The manual has a bit of pencil writing at the back.

£5 plus p&p.

Edit - Elite went separately.

Edit - this is off to be repaired shortly.


Acorn full height disc drive - not working. When I got this I cleaned the head and removed a bit of label from inside the drive and gave it a go. It started formatting a disc but stopped at track 27 and make disc access noises (rather than the ‘chunk-chunk-chunk’ noise it had been making).
Now all it does it make disc access noises. I have unplugged all the plugs and reconnected them. This is the limit of my skills. I was going to pay to have this repaired as the case is in nice condition but doubt I will get round to it now.

£20 plus p&p. It weighs 2.1Kg so won’t be able to go via Royal Mail for cheap unfortunately.

Suncom Starfighter joystick. I tested this on my C64 and it worked nicely.
This came with a Tac-2 and I only really wanted the Tac-2 so here it is!
There are some cable ‘melt marks’ underneath but the top is in pretty good condition.

£15 plus p&p seems the going rate for these.

As a random aside is anyone is interested in swapping a nice working ZX80 or Atom for the Apple and discs / manuals? I think they are more or less aligned value wise, certainly based on eBay sales.
There is a pretty good chance that is where the money would end up anyway sooner or later!

The Apple has now gone.

Edit - it turns out the money is going to be used by Mrs Boffin to replace our dish washer which just broke. Not really what I had in mind. :cry:

Found a couple of manuals that are duplicates. Both are in fairly good condition.

These are up for £5 plus p&p for both (paypal friends and family please!). The p&p will be £4 in the UK for Royal Mail 2nd Signed for. If it turns out to be less will refund the difference.

ooooh, nice looking drive. I’d be interested, before or after repair. Is it still available?

Sorry - should have updated the listing. This went off to be repaired with another one but have not got one back yet! Need to chase that up.
