On this day (23rd of April) 1982 the 8-bit home computer known as the ZX
Spectrum came out in Blighty. The ZX had 16 KB of RAM for £125 or
with 48 KB for £175; these prices were later reduced to £99
and £129 respectively
The computer would become well known in its native land as many people were able to buy it - what with its low price.
The ZX would also be the home of many classic games such as Jet Set Willy, Elite, Jetpac, Ant Attack and loads of other games I haven't ever played.
