1980 – 1K of RAM ! Sinclair #ZX81

A friend of mine was having an Australian Spring clean in Scotland yesterday and found this little gem at the back of a cupboard.


The original Sinclair ZX81 circa. 1980 – with a whopping 1K of RAM, with a HUGE 16K RAM expansion pack on the back (that kept moving and crashing the machine mid- BASIC program entry pushing the dodgy touchpad keys hard for input).

Nostalgia. I learned to code on the next up model, the Sinclair ZX Spectrum (image on the header of this blog).
