Happy 40th birthday ZX Spectrum

Happy birthday to that little black bleepy, rubber keyed gadget that gave me so many good memories in my childhood. I always get a huge blast of warm lovely nostalgia when I think about the speccy days and how much fun we had.

Seconded.

The feeling of upgrading from the ZX80 was amazing. 48k of RAM to play with was incredible. Well worth the extra money over the 16k version.

Never got to upgrade to the ZX but had many happy days buying 1 program tape from WH Smith’s, copying it, taking it back as “unwanted gift” getting it exchanged for another game and doing it all again the next week with different staff until
They started sealing them
