Very sad to see people parting with their stuff (that said, I guess its more that I'm emotionally linked to my old stuff - even if I haven't actually touched it in over a decade (or two)), but good luck with the trade. :D

More of a consolidation :D Well at lest thats how I'm selling it too myself.

I've promised myself (not that the other half knows yet) that ill get one of the reproduction boards when they are available and build my own ZX80.

With the A500 I have my A1200 and A2000 so won't miss it too much although I did put a lot of work into it. And the Atari 400 that I'm about to list I've got a 130XE which I've promised a new keyboard too.

Hmm very happy.... Well happy but now have serious regret :?

Anyway I am supposed to be reducing the amount of machines I have. This will help calm "she who must be obeyed" especially if she finds out about the Atmos :lol:

Just hoping the ZX80 boards get made and I manage to get one. I have an idea for a clear case but it will require casting my mind back to my school days and bending perspex.

Should be fun. Not to mention the first computer I've assembled completely.
