Acorn A4000 Computer, refurbished and in excellent condition, working flawlessly.

I had one spare A4000 motherboard, so it's gone back into an A4000 chassis. This absolutely is the last one I will have to sell.

  • RISCOS 3.11 (in ROM)
  • ARM 250 CPU (12Mhz)
  • New CMOS NiCad Battery
  • 425MB HDD (406MB formatted)
  • 3.5" Floppy Disc Drive
  • 4 MB RAM
  • 10 BaseT Ethernet Card (i-cubed)
  • Keyboard
  • Acorn Mk3 Mouse
  • User Guides
  • Monitor not included

It has been completely stripped down, cleaned, the motherboard CMOS NiCad battery replaced, and then re-assembled. A soak test for 7 days has shown it to be totally stable.

The keyboard and mouse have both been refurbished by stripping down fully, cleaning, re-assembling and testing. The rubber ball in the mouse has been replaced with a rubber-coated steel ball for better traction.

The Hard Drive has a fresh install of the software that would have been supplied ex factory (including universal boot). Plus, as this machine originally came from a primary school, all the original school software is still installed (in a folder called 'OriginalHDD'). Their collection was quite large, so there are plenty of child-centred resources for someone with primary-age children.
