The main market for these machines were universities. I have surplus one from Leeds Universirty in the garage, the BBC board of which was working when it came to me although I could never get the 32015 started. I do recall Acorn User interviewing a Professor regarding their use of the Cambridge Workstation (CWS). He or she stated that despite the machine only have 1/10th the power of the university Cray supercomputer, as the staff and staff were able to test their code on the CWS

Hi all - I bought my Cambridge Workstation form a company in Richmond, Surrey, UK in 1985 and still have it if anyone is interested. I developed for it a program for the documentation of entity models. It was still working satisfactorily in 1995 when I was using it to document a Corporate Data Model that I created for the British Army. This form of documentation was taken by my friend and colleague Richard Barker into Oracle where it emerged as their Designer 2000 product. I also have my BBC Micro and coprocessor.

My neighbor bought this computer, with "Peach Tree" software, in a package, with printer for some serious money in the late 80''s. I don''t remember exactly, but $6000 rings a bell. He was very proud of it, and I believe he used it for word processing.

Anyone with these machines, please contact me - I'm wondering how many were made, and trying to get Panos 1.4X disk images to re-install. I also need a keyboard or details of the keyswitch to repair mine :)
