Is that the "ARM evaluation unit" (or labelled as something similar)? I've got
one of those *somewhere* but no docs / software for it. Think it had 4MB of
memory which was a reasonable amount in those days.

I've got a whole pile of other BBC and related stuff, but I've generally
forgotten what I have - your posting made me remember the ARM unit.

Funny how people don't remember the BBC systems that well - I suppose they were
generally quite expensive to have at home (compared to the Spectrums and C64
machines) and in a school environment people didn't get much of a chance to
really play about with them. They're certainly quite well designed machines...
