That was my first thought as well. It had mutated into a huge powerful beast of a machine.

Your mistake is in being constrained to only thinking in 2 dimensions. The Electron moves in 4 dimensions.

Plus 1 mated with Plus 3, then some cartridges mated with those, and for good measure a WiFi dongle!

Not only does it sound fantastic, it actually looks cool too. All those connections hanging off the back of an Acorn Electron make it seem as though it is located deep underground in Geneva, working on their spinny electron thingy..
