Shame the Electron had slow memory chips to save costs, some kind of video memory contention in its ULA which the BBC didn't have which slowed things down even more, and no Mode 7 which a 32K computer really needed as otherwise the available memory was limited.

Sinclair had Acorn beat when it came to building to a price point.
