Things are tough right now ...

They're tough for everyone :( But when coronavirus hit here in the UK, the museum had to close its doors to the public, and we lost practically all our income overnight.

Please Donate Via Just GivingNo visitors, no workshops, no events, no school visits... no income. We know that things are tough for everyone right now, but if you can afford to help us through these tough times please donate what you can.

There's over 36,000 exhibits here! That should keep you occupied for a bit - get searching!

OCR Text: 
Acorn launches the next generation of Network Computers,
delivering Pentium-class performance on a low-cost device for
the Internet access market.
Acorn set the standard for the first generation of NCs by providing the
reference designs for Oracle/NCI. Since August, Acorn has been
driving the NC clone market, ensuring wide availability of
NC-compliant devices from many sources.
Now with the coNCord ultra-fast NC, Acorn has set an unbeatable
pace for the next generation. Based on the Digital SA110 StrongARM
processor, with a 233MHz clock speed, coNCord uses Acorn's
world-beating TVCentric™ technology to bring rock-steady,
monitor-quality output to both PAL and NTSC televisions.
coNCord has deeply embedded support for Java, a smartcard
interface, and infra-red keyboard support, enabling it to be controlled
from the remote handset familiar to all domestic TV users, as well as
from a standard keyboard. coNCord is available either in the standard
NC casing or as a visually stunning tower system.
The coNCord licence is available with a full range of customisation
options, including software bundles and branding, and 16-bit fonts,
allowing Acorn's partners and customers to build the machine to suit
their exact requirements.
"coNCord is a great step forward in the evolution of NC," comments Kevin Coleman, Head of Communications at Acorn Group. "It is a faster, more powerful machine anything else currently available, and once again ma
Acorn out as leaders in this field. We now offer a co range of technologies for licence, from entry level consumer orientated products right up to Enterprise
client/server solutions."
