System with Memotech keyboard and Stringy Floppy

Post by mrtinb »

I found this listing on eBay. Quite complete system with Memotech keyboard and Stringy Floppy. A little on the expensive side.

I'm just mentioning it, as a Stringy Floppy seems rare.

Do I see multiple interfaces plugged in at the same time?

It's impressive to see it still works. ZX Spectrum Microdrives, for example, age poorly and suffer from sponge disintegration...

Yes there are a lot of expansions, but the only storage is the Stringy Floppy.

The Memotech software packages HRG and Memocalc has a switch on the side, to enable them before power up. I see there's two 16k RAMpacks as well, and I think the Memotech 16k RAMpacks can be setup for master or slave. Therefore they occupy different memory areas.

Not just a stringy floppy: he even has the rolodex-style holder for the tapes, something I've seen mentioned.

I emailed the seller. Turns out he didn't use the system long. He got a QL shortly after and used it for taxes up till 2012.
