!!! Mounting Tension: [BBC]
The Acorn [BBC] Model A and B appeared in 1981, with a 6502 [CPU] and 16k or 32k [RAM], respectively. The [BBC] Model B had more video modes and better expandability, and vastly outsold the Model A. Because they were British, schools in the UK used the [BBC] computers. Some schools in NewZealand followed suit.
