BBC Master 128

1986


Master 128
This was the standard issue computer. The 128 in the name referred to its 128 KB of RAM, though it also featured 128 KB ROM.

BBC Master 512

1986


Master 512
This system boasted a coprocessor card with a 10 MHz Intel 80186 and 512 KB memory. It also had the ability to run DOS Plus and the GEM graphical user interface.

BBC Master AIV

1986


Master AIV
The Master AIV (Advanced Interactive Videodisc) was essentially a Master Turbo model with a SCSI interface and a VFS (Videodisc Filing System) ROM added, and formed the basis of the BBC Domesday System. Although normally supplied as part of a Domesday System, with LaserVision player, Domesday videodiscs, monitor and trackerball included, an upgrade kit was also available to turn a normal BBC Master into a Domesday System.

BBC Master Compact

1986


Master Compact
This model separated the keyboard from another unit which could be placed under the monitor.

BBC Master ET

1986


Master ET
The ET (Econet Terminal) system was designed for use in a network and as such had no interfaces except RGB and Composite video, plus an Econet interface module and ANFS fitted as standard (it was usually an option). It used the same main circuit board as the Master 128, but the components for missing interfaces were simply not fitted (though there was nothing stopping them being added later by someone with appropriate soldering skills). The internal ROM also contained much less software than that of the Master 128.

BBC Master Scientific

1987


Master Scientific
The Master Scientific was announced at the time of the BBC Masters launch, but was not produced. It was to have an 8 MHz 32016 coprocessor with 32081 floating point processor and 512 KB of RAM, running the PANOS operating system. This was similar to the previous external 32016 Second Processor.

BBC Master Turbo

1986


Master Turbo
This was a Master with 4 MHz 65C102 coprocessor card (which could be either bought with the machine or added to an existing Master 128).
