Who remembers the Sinclar ZX Spectrum

Who would believe it but the Sinclair ZX Spectrum computer was launched 25 years ago today. I never owned one myself but remember being extremely envious of many others who did. God only know why since it took so long to type in even the most basic games (pardon the pun) since the model with the tape/data recorder didn’t arrive until several years later.

Anyway, go on, show your age and tell us about your ZX Spectrum.

  1. Literally just finished posting about this myself when I spotted your entry for it. Read about it on Slashdot also. What a great machine though, smaller than any modern laptop and with a host of great games. They don’t make’em like they used to! 🙂

  2. Guess I should have posted last year :-), but I remember trying to code a game of pontoon on a ZX81 in BASIC. Got past shuffling the cards and then ran out of memory. 1K of RAM sounded reasonable on line 10!
