      Loved this machine! I spent many hours coding on this. And I still have one now!

      I'm 24 born 1985 and have no idea what this is?? can someone tell me what it does

      I'm 52, born in 1957 and I don't know what it is either.

      I'll bet these are things that, whether updated or not, we'll never know about unless we first have a need or an interest. That's when you find about things - when you need to have them (or want them).

      Hova? It's a home computer from early 80's! In the US there was the Commodore 64 and this was the Brits equivalent

      Wow it seems like it's been forever since I saw a ZX Spectrum. Basically it's a computer . The keyboard had the processing unit as well. Audio cassettes were used for storing the data much like the hard disks these days. That was done by plugging in the microphone in jack with the keyboard. And the screen happen to be a TV (cool right!!). All that stuff connected to the keyboard should be the other peripherals like the modem and secondary storage.
      Guess what I am born 1986 but was lucky enough to see that cause my grandpa was a techno maniac back in the old days. He had the same model

      ohhh, good old spectrum. I bought mine in 1984, but it was stolen from my basement.:(
      I remember the keyboard was made of rubber!

      I had a Sinclair growing up. It wasn't this model but it was similar. This brough back some memories.

      DUDEEE!!!! AMAZING!!! my dad bought me one in the late 80's. i lost it. bad move. very bad move. I would love to have it back, to surely frame it and hang it in the wall.
      I too spent hours coding like @paulharvey. it was nice. Im getting nostalgic. oh man...

      Cool! I remember wanting to put one of these in our family car, to make long road trips more fun.
