SALE OF THE CENTURY
Sadly, I have packed my BBC Master 512 Computer, carefully away. Space is now
the problem, because over the years I have collected a great deal of software
- with all the bells and whistles - to enable me to do most things. A very
welcome birthday and retirement gift of a PC is my reason for this sale.
The Computer and all the peripherals are very clean, well maintained and in
good working order. I would prefer to sell the lot as one sale. The recipient
will have everything he/she needs and could have a truly excellent computer to
meet all their needs. A case of unpacking, attaching all cables and away you
go with complete reliability.
As regards price, I was thinking in the order of £200, with the recipient
collecting, and for that they would be obtaining;
