WOW! Much bigger than the 480Z with the 5.25" drives that we had.

I remember those awesome CUB monitors .... they're a blast from the past, too!

I was speaking to my dad about this last night (He's been on the governing board at a local senior school for about 14 years!) and asked what happens with old computers etc....

He advised me they are usually returned to local council as the school does not usually own them. What happens to them then he does not know. If i get any more info I'll update.

I remember thr RM Numbus and Link 380Z machines and would love one of either.

Wow what a blast from the past - cut my teeth on those old 380z machines pissing about with the ones at my dads work when waiting for him to finish. Brought back some real memories - thanks for posting the pics muguk. Seem to remember they have a rather terse single char boot command sequence - or am I mistaken ?

Yeah, the 380Z and 480Z LINK machines had an odd boot sequence.
You typed a single character command.
If I remember correctly: B was to boot from disk, L was to load a cassette and R was to run the ROM version of BASIC.
