@retrobytes it’s a lovely little machine, especially as you can boot to a CP/M command-line with a little work
@jonn_blanchard I did not know you could do that. That's made me even more interested in getting one now.
@jonn_blanchard @Wildbill I learned BASIC on an NC-100. School set me up with it 'cause of my dyspraxia (teachers couldn't read my writing). It was super fun to program on but it had no non-volatile memory, the memory chips were kept alive with a watch battery that was supposed to last 7 years but usually lasted about 2 months before it gave out and you just lost the lot. :)
@jonn_blanchard I’ve got an NC100, it’s a nice little machine. Been keeping an eye out for an nc200 and z88 but they seem to be a bit pricey 😬
@sadken Yeah they seem to go for fairly high prices, I was lucky with my two NC200s, although one has severe battery damage.
@jonn_blanchard I don’t think I’ll ever find one as cheap as my nc100 😂 think I only paid £10 for it
