Quince Communications manufactured machines mainly aimed at the education market. They generally incorporated either the BBC Micro model or BBC Master computers.

Our Quince machine incorporates a BBC Master computer incorporating the Doomsday 14.22 1997 SPROW chip. The unit incorporates twin NEC 134-1006-004-0 Disk Drives. They were produced in extremely small numbers by reboxing Model B or in this case Master BBC Micros, for in house use by BBC engineering departments. The system includes an Oak metal keyboard.

Our machine together with software and manuals were very kindly donated by Matthew Sylvester BSc (Hons) the Senior Broadcast Engineer of BBC Bristol.
