Little brother of the famous (at
least in Europe) Acorn BBC micro. Bought it about 12
years ago. Now I'm glad that it was the Electron and not
the CPC464. Featuring the 6502 processor, 32K or RAM and
32K of ROM. Basic and assembler included! The powerful
BBC Basic with features taken from Pascal and direct
access to the OS. Three video outputs onboard: TV, CVBS
and RGB. And the tape recorder connector of course. No
other interfaces whatsoever. There were 2 main expansion
units (for the big connector on the rear): The Plus 1
with RS and parallel interface and the Plus 3 with a
3.5" 800K disk drive. Also available multiple EPROM
programmers, RAM expansions etc.
