I seem to recall they were ~£300 for a Model 'B', which was a lot, when a Spectrum was just over the £100 mark, or a C64 for about the same,... although many of these machines started out at far higher price points,... I recall a friend got a Ti994a,... which at release had a rather eye watering £1000+ price tag, but then it was cutting edge and had a 16 bit processor and all that.

I ended up with an Acorn Electron, which kept me highly amused, writing code, and playing 'Cylon Attack' with my analog joysticks.
