Trivia

BASIC is an acronym for Beginners All-purpose Symbolic Instruction Code

8-bit is an early computer hardware device or software program that is capable of transferring eight bits of data at the same time.

8-bit computer manufacturers Sinclair, Acorn and Tangerine (Oric) were all based within a few miles of each other in Cambridgeshire England.

Personal Experience

Like the Dragon 32 I never owned an Oric-1 when originally available in the early 80s but i was fully aware of them due to the marketing and press at the time.

Recently, however, I have managed to obtain a boxed version of an Oric-1 and its in really good condition.
