ZX-81

ZX-81

(computer)
An even more successful version of the Sinclair ZX-80, featuring a large uncommitted logic array instead of much discrete logic, an improved BASIC, and rather more expandability (it could take 16kb RAM packs). It was launched around 1981 and was eventually replaced by the Spectrum.

"In those early days of home computers, you were either into the Sinclair (Spectrum or ZX-81) or the Commodore, but that's what sparked the interest for me."
This was a time of milkmen (remember them?), two lots of post a day, O-levels, ZX-81 computers, ska music, Harrington jackets (with tartan lining), Madness badges, Day-Glo terry towelling socks, blackjacks and fruit salad chews, Nutty Bars and Freddy the Frog chocolates, white veneer MFI furniture, and the continued presence of black and white tellies (with a stick-on green plastic screen if you were really posh).
