Acorn BBC Master 128
The BBC Master 128 was released by Acorn in 1986 and was the successor to the hugely successful BBC Micro.
It was designed to be backwardly compatible with the original BBC Micro in order to keep the massive userbase of schools. However, there were a few compatibility issues and some programs that worked well on the BBC Micro just wouldn't run on the Master.
This was a fairly minor problem, and was generally outweighed by the numerous improvements that the Master offered including, more RAM, the ability to load ROMS into 'sideways' RAM, the Numeric Keypad, ROM Cartridge Slots, a DFS as standard, and of course, it was faster.
Another big plus for the Master 128 was the fact that it a View - a highly regarded word processor of the time and ViewSheet - A spreadsheet, were built in.
Our BBC Master 128 is practically as new in it's original box, with manual, disk, tape, view help sheet and keystrip.
