Acorn Computer
Archimedes A3010

The Acorn Archimedes A3000 was replaced by the Acorn A3010 and A3020, two simililar but slightly different models, aimed at the home and educational market.

See common features text in A3020 page.

For the first time, the A3010 was sold in electrical retail stores, next to the Amiga A1200 and Atari Falcon 030, as well as 486 class PCs which where starting to become popular in UK homes.

The Acorn A3010 had two Atari style joystick ports, green function keys and, previously unheard of in the Archimedes family, an RF port for TV, which the A3020 did not have.

There was a little known rare German version of the A3010 which had grey rather than green keys and a German QWERTZ keyboard.
