I know it's been said elsewhere but blimey the Next is physically lovely in the flesh. It does look and feel like a Spectrum, and the modern concessions are all hidden away discretely. The size is surprisingly small too, but not cramped. Bloody lovely. Rick Dickinson left us something very beautiful.

Mike C says:

"Are you looking at images of people receiving their Next's and feeling down, because you're still waiting on yours?

Another batch of accelerated models is due to be collected by our logistics partner tomorrow. They will then speed out into your hands.

Again, this is fulfilment to UK addresses only at this point. Deep apologies to those who live further afield but we will get to you, we promise.

If you are in the UK, and your backer number is between 1304 and 2406 (inclusive), you're in the list. Shipping information and the emails should start arriving on Tuesday/Wednesday.

We can't wait to see your unboxing photos!"

I know! Imagine being #2406 and not getting the extra delayed gratification that Mr Reynholm will be enjoying!
