ZX Spectrum is 25 years old
At a press conference at the Churchill Hotel on Friday the 23rd of April 1982, Sir Clive Sinclair revealed to the world his new home computer: the ZX Spectrum. With games such as Manic Miner, Jet Set Willy and Atic Atac (a few of the thousands) it bought joy to millions of users. The rubber keyed Spectrum was released in two versions, 16KB and 48KB models. It was powered by a Zilog Z80A CPU at 3.5 Mhz and was designed for use with contemporary portable television sets, for a simple colour graphic display.
The official World of Spectrum web site has thousands of games which you can download for free and play on your PC or Mac using the emulator.
