I would like to sell my Oric Atmos (genuine Oric NOVA)

In this forum you can write about anything that does not fit in other forums.
This includes generic Oric talkings and things that are totaly unrelated but want to share with people here :)

I would like to sell my Oric Atmos (genuine Oric NOVA)

Post by Brana » Mon Sep 17, 2012 11:25 am

Hello, I hope I'm posting in the correct part of Your forum;

I am thinking of selling my genuine "Oric NOVA" (Atmos) computer...
The main reason for my idea of selling it is the fact that I haven't used it for ages...
(What ever I need now regarding the Oric - I just use the emulator)

The computer comes with it's power supply, and that's about all of it... :)
It is in good working condition!
I'll upload pictures of it soon...

I am in Serbia (former Yugoslavia) and I think that selling can be arranged via classical post office (Post Express or something similar).

So, is anyone interested in buying it?
Give me an offer if You'd like - how much could it be worth? :)

Best regards
Brana

Perhaps you could post a photo of your machine so people can see how it looks like.

Here they are :)

It's old Oric Nova (Slovenian Atmos) with standard (English) Oric Extended Basic.

I used to put stickers at the bottom of the keys on the keyboard (like the ASCII values for some keys) before I learned them "by hard"), they can be un-peeled off if you desire... :P

Same story (regarding the stickers) goes next to the "Oric Nova logo" at the upper-right corner :)

It is in good working order (the computer itself),

However, it's power supply is currently defective (but it will be fixed in a couple of days) and when it works - I'll post the pictures (if you wish) of it's power supply as well.

(Note, the power supply unit has no floppy disk installed in it, and it also has NO OPTION for installing any kind of floppy disk.)
This Oric Nova computer CAN WORK with floppy disk, but it's current power supply (the one that I have) cannot handle the floppy disk hardware itself.
If you plan to use floppy disk - you will need another power supply for it.

It seems quite dirty :) but as long as it runs does not much important.

Does it have any difference from normal Oric Atmos? It says "Nova 64". Any change in RAM ? ( 48K - 64 K..) . Is there a change in characters as in Oric pravetz?

I put your message to Turkish retro computer forum. there might be some people who are interested in. Maybe you can tell an averaging value for this and I can tell them.

Absolutely identical to regular Oric Atmos :)

Edit:
And just now - it's power supply unit (that was bugging me for some time) is operational and working again! :)

Here is a short video that I have just uploaded on YouTube showing my Oric Nova in working condition :)

Hmm, your video doesn't show any video output (in other words, screen)?

Screen is OK 100% (UHF, that I have used, and RGB that I have never used).
I just didn't have any available television set to connect the Oric to it at the moment of recording the video.
If you like - I could arrange another video, just to show you that the output really does work on the TV screen...

Hoverer, it appears that I do have another kind of a problem:

SENDING IT is going to be a problem, for as far I can see for now - the official Post Office service CAN send the package (from Serbia to abroad) but the same official Post Office service can NOT send ME the money back for it in Serbia!?!
This is also the same with a couple of private shipping companies that I called later regarding the matter...?!

So now I'm currently searching for the means of transportation and the means of paymant!? :(
