It has serial number 06-ALA01-0000087, marking it as the 87th machine produced by Acorn's Malaysian plant. When the machine turns on, the usual "Acorn Electron" banner is instead replaced by "Electron Trial".

It has a serial number of 06-ALA01-0000107, the 06 is the Malaysian designation, the ALA for a trial machine, and 107 for the number of the computer.
