Since we got Internet, eBay, etc, it's easy as anywhere else... :D But back in the 80's, in our closed market, very few were smuggled in... more popular models like the ZX81 and ZX Spectrum were successful...

Re: Getting My QL working - what to do .....

Lol. My inquiry was handled by their domestic sales, while yours is by their foreign sales... let's see what's the best offer we can get from both ways
