Hardware, Embedded Systems "The ZX Spectrum is 30 years old. The successor to Sir Clive Sinclair's ZX81 - at the time the world's best selling consumer computer - it introduced colour 'high resolution' graphics and sound. It also offered an extended version of Sinclair Basic, a computer language with which hundreds of thousands of users were already familiar."

The first computer I used was a BBC Micro Model A. But the first I owned was a 16K ZX Spectrum. Oh the excitement when opening the box that Christmas....

Manic Miner, Stonkers, Lords of Midnight, Elite, The Hobbit... sigh.

I still have the Speccy + loads of other 8 bit micros. I am currently trying to teach my 8 year old daughter the joys of BBC Basic ;)
