Default Re: Any Acorn A3000/10/20 Users here?

They are good machines. Definitely worth it.

Watch out for three problems though:

1. They tend to blow up after a few minutes if they've been sitting around for 20 years. Check the shiny gold RIFA X2 capacitors in the power supply - it's always them.
2. There are occasionally leaked batteries inside them.
3. Forget about setting the date post-Y2K unless you have a patched ROM.
