ebay : An original QL went there for £201 - thats probably more than it cost new. Admittedly it was in working order and with the complete original packing.
Quanta magazine : I have just seen a copy of a 1986 issue with an article wondering about the future of the QL as a result of the Amstrad takeover of Sinclair. Somethings change and some dont.
Thats all for now
