The Acorn Electron was the baby brother of the BBC Micro, both of which are relatively unknown outside of the UK and Europe. And although it wasn't the unprecedented success Acorn might have hoped it to be, it's still an awesome 8-bit machine that I think any computer collector or retro gamer should consider!

This is a basic overview of the history, hardware and software of the Elk, from the perspective of an American collector. How do the pros and cons stack up, and is it worth getting an Elk over the BBC Model B?

Many thanks to UKRetroGames for the Electron!
