ZX Spectrum

Image for the ZX Spectrum platform

Launched in April 1982 by Sinclair Research Ltd, the ZX Spectrum (or 'Speccy') was among the first mainstream home computers in the UK and is widely credited with kickstarting the British IT industry. On the demoscene today it enjoys a following in the UK, central Europe and Russia. The original model came in 16K and 48K versions; the 128K model followed in 1986, also featuring an internal AY sound chip. All models are powered by a Z80A CPU at 3.5MHz, and have a 15-colour 256x192 bitmap display. Read more on Wikipedia (Photo credit: Bill Bertram)
