Paperweight, I would have thought - I've never heard of them being able to do
anything 'clever' (unlike, say, some of Acorn's set top boxes which do
resemble a computer closely enough to fire up a web browser on, talk to a few
very specific hardware add-ons etc.).
I doubt there's even many useful components that can be salvaged as it'll
likely all be surface mount stuff and big shiny screened silver boxes inside.
