It must be nearly 25 years since I first read about the forthcoming Falcon in ST User or ST Format?
I didn't immediately have the money to buy one and by the time I did, in late 1994 the writing was very much on the wall and so I jumped ship to the PC at the time for various reasons.
Now I finally have one.
It was last used in 97/98 according to the owner (who had bought it new) and has been in storage so it's properly filthy!
The case is generally in good condition with a few scratches and some discoloration, the latter I can fix with some hydrogen peroxide and UV...
It has 14MB of RAM and the original 84MB Conner hard drive which seems to be dead so I'll probably replace that with a CF card.
Video output is clean though.
It was for sale locally so I got to see it working before handing over the cash, which while still overpriced in my book, was at least nowhere near the asking prices on eBay USA.
