Martin Angove's Utterly Pointless Pages

My Computers

I've not been right at the forefront of new technology; I bought my A310 in 1988, maybe nine months after they went on sale, and I bought my RiscPC in 1994, five years and eleven months after the A310, and six months after they went on sale. The Beeb was bought while they were still quite expensive, but a couple of years after launch, and the 5mx was bought within a couple of months of launch.

Anyway, here is a list of the computers I still occasionally use, in purchase date order:

BBC Micro Model B - Christmas 1984

(Still working. See a fan page here.)

Acorn Archimedes A310 - July 1988

(It still works, though is not in much use these days)

Psion Series 3 256k

(Not an Acorn, but they did badged versions)

Acorn Risc PC 600 - June 1994

(My main computer now)

Psion Series 5mx - August 1999

Next on the purchase list in no order of priority (when money allows)
