Another Acorn Electron

Acorn Electron MicroThe lovable Acorn Electron, the BBC's more competitively priced little brother, usually sells for 10-15 pounds, or, well, 11-16 euros, meaning that this Acorn Electron computer might just turn out to be the retro bargain you've been waiting for. Sellers ships only within Europe and includes a UK 240v PSU, a TV lead, them cassette leads, a First Byte joystick interface, the manual and the classic Blagger game.

Find out more about this rather popular (in the UK) 8-bit micro at Wikipedia, the aptly named Acorn Electron World and the lovely Stairway to Hell site. To emulate the Electron try the freeware Elkulator.
