Hardware, Embedded Systems In this article, I'm going to explore the idea that the 8 bit home computer not only had a great deal to offer the prehistoric early-humans of 1985 but that it may also have a place in the modern world; perhaps, there is something that we can learn from it. Having identified the laudable, worthwhile elements of this class of machine, I'm going to make some suggestions towards a scheme that would embody these characteristics in the form of a machine that would have a place within the modern world.

20 years ago the Sinclair Z88 wasn't too far off these specs - imagine what could be done now!

Mine still works and I still tote it in my case for notes, drafts and text writing - with 20 hrs on 4AAs power is never a problem.

The silent keyboard is perfect for making and referring to notes in meetings.

When it dies I'll be bereft!
