Acorn Archimedes A440/1

The third Archimedes model Acorn launched in July 1989 was the A440/1. It not only had 4MB RAM, but also a 53MB ST506 hard disc.

The Archimedes 440/1 model is the flagship of the 400/1 range,
featuring:
50 Mbytes hard disc. (Formatted)
4 Mbytes RAM as standard.

The hard disc and the greater RAM of the 440/1 offer the same benefits as those of the 420, but more so. Whereas the 20 Mbytes hard disc of the 420/1 offers more than sufficient storage for many users, you may wish to build up large banks of data, or keep a great selection of software readily available.

Similarly, the 4 Mbytes of RAM of the Archimedes 440/1 computer provides the space for the most demanding of professional users running large applications and several processes simultaneously.

Sold in July 1989 for £1299

Our unit is in excellent condition and was kindly donated by Harry Beard
