I'm going to be really pedantic and argue that the very first Elite is Classic Elite, and the version shown in the picture is the later Master version.
Anyway, it was a good day, although a bit rushed for me due to train times (spent more time going to and from the show than at it ). Holding it in the smaller venue did sadly reflect the shrinking market, but OTOH the atmosphere felt positive and friendly - as someone else has already pointed out somewhere, in rather stark contrast to the average argument on here or the mailing lists or comp.sys.acorn.*!
I really liked the idea of putting the A9 in a monitor, and with wireless keyboard and mouse, and perhaps wireless networking too, that would be the ultimate computer for a confined space!
