I worked for Broadlands Finance (NZ) in the early ''80s. Broadlands acquired a small number of SORD''s and had a simple programme written to assist with the promotion of repayment insurance for dealer written HP agreements. I smuggled the Christchurch machine home and over many nights nutted out how to programme the PIPS platform to do stuff that was really useful for the business! First and very fond memory of harnessing this brave new technology!!

I used a Sord for several years for work. The PIPS_III spreadsheet would do something in one operation that Excel still won''t - Sort and Sub total in one operation.
I think the spreadsheet was ahead of its time.
My boss bought it in Singapore where we had business interests.
Eight years ago when moving and downsizing I reluctantly gave away two Sord models - one with 5.25 and the other an 8 inch disc and all the manual etc.
There never were any good old days but I think nostalically about my Sord my first computer.

The price in Italy was Lire 4,900,000 + IVA (14$?) in 1982 (found in an old computer magazine ad), about 5 months of salary of an employee at the time.

I remember writing all this software for an Insurance Agent I knew, who had one of these Sord M23''s. Can''t remember which variant it was now. Anyway, he ran his agent business on this machine with the apps I wrote for him.

I still have one. I've just dragged it down from the attic!
It was still able to go when packed away, not sure I have any discs for it.
I remember that it had a great pacman game
