Acorn BBC Model B with Disc Drive and Games

This is an Acorn BBC Model B computer with 32K of RAM and a double-sided 40/80 track switchable disc drive. The disc drive has its own built in power supply so it's doesn't load the computer's. It is fitted with the Watford Disc Filing System version 1.43 ROM, which many enthusiasts think is the best ever DFS for the BBC micro. It's faster than the standard Acorn DFS and has many additional features including built in FORMAT and VERIFY commands so you don't have to run these from a separate disc. It can also have twice as many files on a disc as the Acorn DFS

The computer is fitted the with the Beebug Toolkit ROM which has many useful functions for programmers including a BASIC editor, plus the View word processor ROM.

I will include a CD with the manuals for the Watford DFS, Toolkit, View and the BBC User Guide and Advanced User Guide and a booklet describing the use of the BBC's disc filing system. These are all in RTF format so they can be read or printed on any PC or Mac computer.

The machine is in good, clean condition and everything seems to be working perfectly. It has no school markings and all the keys work (often this can be a problem with these computers).

Several discs containing various games are also provided. These include Maze, Stock Car, Rubble Trouble, Gouls, Pole Position, Chuckie Egg, Meteors, Zalaga, Protector, Frak, Killer Gorilla, Rocket Raid, Planetoids, Danger UXB, Pacman, Manic Miner, Meteor Mission, Carnival, Magic Mushrooms, Fortress, 3D Bomb Alley, Screwball, Starship Command, Snooker, Hopper, Blitzkrieg, Pinball, Super Breakout, JCB Digger, Cyclon Attack, Monaco, Airlift, Space Adventure, Arena 3000, Space Bandits, Crystal Castles, Exploding Fist, Beachead, Citadel, Mineshaft, Fruit Machine, Jet Boat, Spitfire, Snapper, Banjax, Bugeyes, Bugeyes II, Red Arrows, Nightshade, Drain Mania, Twin Valley, Kingdom of Hamil, Time Machine, Waxworks, Hobbit, Stranded, Ring of Time, Snowball, ELITE - and many more!

Note that although I will ship to Europe or elsewhere this item will be Non Returnable outside the UK. Shipping costs shown are for UK mainland. There may be an additional charge for Northern Ireland, Scottish highlands and islands, etc.
