It could run your central heating just by itself - switch on power up the fan and lovely warmth! :lol:

That UK101 must have belonged to a serious hobbyist. Look at all those meticulously made home brew expansions, and imagine trying to work out what they all do.

As to the price, it is proof that retro computer collectors are getting a bit silly. It had a 99p start price...

Nearly £500 for a vanilla A5000! :shock:

What is this seller taking? And the hard drive isn't even showing as working. Bet the battery has eaten the board as well.

Caveat emptor, methinks!
