1980s Apricot reborn in noughties as netbook seller


They were 3.5" drives not 51/4"

.. in fact Apricot were pioneers of the 3.5" drives IIRC - a whole 720k's worth of data on a single disk! Worked for them a couple of years in the late 80's before Mitsubishi got 'em.. not exactly great memories.

Dead Vulture

*I* wonder..

how many species died in the cold vacuum of space before they found out about water bears?!?
