I worked in a local authority computer workshop in the 80s and there was a period when BBC micros were in very short supply. During this time we were getting imports from Germany and these BBC micros had a different spec to the uk ones. One major difference was the whole motherboard was enclosed in a very sturdy metal faraday cage. Presumaby german rules on RF interference were tougher than ours. On another note regarding Apple IIs. I'm a Brit and I learned to program on one of those and would love to see one again. My best memory of the apple II was that the ref manual had the assembler listing for the OS printed in the back. I still have it now. Those were the days ........
