I finally managed to luck into one of these, direct from England. Mine as an added chiclet keyboard that looks great. There are new pictures below, but they didn't turn out very sharp.
Edward Hammond Comments:
As I recall, I got this computer when I was 12. That would make it 1980. Does that sound right? It was my first, and it was a little intimidating at the start. Although I eventually learned how to do OK with the ZX-81 BASIC, I initially limited myself to "annoy-your-siblings" programs. It went sort of like this:
10 FOR X=1 TO 500
About the time I started to get really good at this and delve into the expanded capability of the 16k RAM module (the ZX-81 has only 1k of on-board RAM), I was distracted by high school, Apple II's and later Macs. Now, I mainly work on a PPC 8500/120.
