A nice clean A3000 system. ( some yellowing to brand logo's )
A brochure cover I believe for the BBC A3000
The A3000 still retained the BBC corporate logo and BBC Owl image.
It was the last Acorn machine to do so I believe.
the underside of the A3000 always fascinated me in that you can see a location in the
recessed pocket by the power supply that I believe was for an auxillary power output
Like the one on the BBC Micro for powering external Floyy Disc Drives etc.
There is also a compartment for 2 x AA style batteries for the CMOS RAM
This was not used and the motherboard had a battery soldered directly to it.
