      a device that takes us back to the 1980s when most A level students dabbled on micros. They learnt Basic and continued on from there. Computing was no longer considered only for the Geeks. Our grand children would be interested in learning to program.

      Would be great to get one in Australia. Here's hoping. Being a teacher it can only help students develop more skills and become active members of society.
