256TC-SE ( Special Edition )
[Information only page : non-current product ]
Having the same operational specifications as the Premium Plus kit computer,
the 256TC-SE Plus is a very limited edition release of 5 units only.
We have been asked by a number of our customers to make the original
256TC available again. Due to limited stock of a number of critical items,
this was not possible, but we managed to bring these 5 units out
based on the same design as our famous Premium Plus.
It is unfortunate that we cannot provide any more of these machines, as demand
has been high but we will have our new kit ( Classic Plus, and 256TC-Plus) machines
released later in the year.
