ZX Spectrum


When Sir Clive Sinclair announced the new ZX Spectrum back in the early 80's the world was a different place and it was fairly low key launch for the majority of consumers in UK and Europe.

However, computer enthusiasts and gamers were on the look out. These small groups had grown up in the arcades and with the ZX80, ZX81 and even the rival Vic-20 too. They were not to be disappointed. 

Released in 1982 with either 16K of ROM and 16K or 48K of RAM it rocked our world and came with a huge range of add ons to bring the computing to a higher level in our homes.Then there were the games of course!
