eBay item, boxed with a Psion version sticker.

Postby Chr$ » Wed Jul 22, 2020 1:08 pm

This QL on UK eBay has a red sticker on its box that reads: 'Contains New Revised Versions of Psion Application Software'.

I'd not seen that before.

I suppose that probably indicates that it included the much improved Psion software v2.00, that came out in around Feb/Mar 1985.


Collector of QL related computers, accessories and software even though I don't really understand how they work!
Original QL's: many (plus quite a bit of other old stuff and 170+ original software titles)
Custom XT cased QL system with Gold Card, Qimi mouse, Hermes and MFM HDD
QXLII card installed in a PC
Q40 and Q68 also present

Ask me about near NOS re-felted good quality Microdrive Carts - many available.

I remember my QL box had the same sticker. It was a D15 and the Psion software was at v2.00.
I bought it in August 1985, just before the price drop :x
Interestingly, some QLs sold later were earlier versions with JM ROMs and Issue 5 boards. They just needed to get rid of them ;)
