The Acorn Archimedes was Acorn Computers Ltd's first general purpose home computer to be based on their own ARM architecture. Using a RISC design with a 32-bit CPU, at its launch in June 1987, the Archimedes was stated as running at 4 MIPS, with a claim of 18 MIPS during tests.

Acorn System 1. This 6502 modular system was the first computer produced by Acorn in 1979. It was basically the same type of computer as competitors offered at that time (KIM-1, MK14, Nascom, etc...) : a 6502 or Z80 CPU (in this case, a 6502) mounted on a simple "naked" board, with a one-line display and a hexadecimal keyboard.

Sophie Wilson FRS is a British computer scientist. She is known for designing the Acorn Micro-Computer, the first of a long line of computers sold by Acorn Computers Ltd, as well as the instruction set of the ARM processor. Wilson now works at semiconductor giant Broadcom, working on a processor line she also created - FirePath, a DSL chip that has also had a major impact.

Computing pioneer Sophie Wilson, who helped design the Acorn Micro-Computer and the original ARM processor, has been nominated for the European Inventor Award 2013 for her contributions to technological, social and economic progress.

Acorn Computer  BBC Model A / B / B+  	    The Acorn BBC model A was the successor of the Acorn Atom and its first name was Acorn Proton. It was a very popular computer in the UK and was widely used in schools, but it didn't have great success elsewhere (even though it did have great features, it was too expensive).    The Model A lacked some of the connectors of the Model B/B+ (User port, Tube, ...) on the underside.
