The ZX Spectrum, the low cost British micro computer from Sir Clive Sinclair which took the UK and many other countries by storm in the '80s. The later +2 model was released by Alan Sugar's Amstrad when he bought the rights to the Sinclair computer division, and that's what we're dealing with today. A machine that needs a lot of TLC inside and out, and Mark and I are set to tackle it today with a full restoration.
