Sord M5

OK Adrian

 Well this M5 came in a plastic 'briefcase' (with Sord M5 logo on it) that
holds all the bits and pieces- it came with a mains power pack, the FALC
basic cart (not Falcon as I said in previoius post), the book and a demo
audio cassette for Basic G, and just one 'controller'. So I suspect that it
did originally have the Basic G cart but that has been 'upgraded'/replaced
with this FALC cart, and along the way it has been lost/tossed out, along
with the second 'controller'. Whether the 'briefcase' held an audio
cassette as well I'm not sure-it would have been a tight squeeze.
Be interested in tracking down samples of software for it. A single basic
cart is rather boring!
