More of interest to other users than myself, but I'm curious as to what could be in this auction.

What is that picture of a white keyboard - did they make external keyboards for the Spectrum?
You'll notice in the second auction for a Spectrum cartridge, is a photo of a Sinclair QL microdrive.

I couldn't make it out either. It looks like some kind of peripheral?

I think I get it now (yey internets)

You remove the top of the Spectrum case, and the keyboard connects directly to the PCB, so there is probably a spectrum 48K up inside there.

matches the photo, and the printer pic matches the normal spectrum printer as well.
Could be quite a decent haul.
