Enterprise / Elan / Flan

Anyone ever have one of these?

I'm currently eyeing one on eBay... don't all rush out and outbid me though...

Were there any decent games for it? A cursory glance at Youtube shows a decent-looking Rick Dangerous port (though I don't like Rick Dangerous much), an Amstrad-ish Batman and not a lot else.

It looks like another "too little too late" 8-bit machine around the same time as the SAM Coupe, a bit of an oddball computer that didn't really get a chance.

Isn't that the one with a built in mini joystick? Can't imagine there is much for it but good for a completest collector...

Was intrigued so had a google and found this on Youtube. Looks like a lot of Speccy ports (due to Z80) but some good looking stuff so I take it back. Pacman is particularly impressive for an 8 bit (probably a port of the arcade emulation on the 128k speccy) - 14m 10s in.

Yeah, there's a few nice-looking games in that line-up, well the Chase HQ port looks good.
Thanks for that! Unfortunately "Enterprise computer" is not the easiest thing to Google for, I get a ton of links to Windows versions and various bits of "enterprise edition" software but hardly anything on the machine itself.

There is an SD card solution - not sure if it's still available:

Also - not sure if it's more Amstrad than Speccy?

Found your Enterprise - seems a reasonable price (or you could just pay £499 instead)! Good luck with the auction. :D

Thanks. Somewhat unsurprisingly I didn't get it! Never mind though!
