All I wanted for my birthday…

Sinclair ZX-81

The ZX81, this is where it all started for me.

While at school (yes Chris, a very long time ago) the ZX81 was offered as a prize (can’t remember what for) and was on display running some simple
10 PRINT "HELLO"
20 GO TO 10

BASIC code, not quite as crude as that but on similar lines.

Anyway I decided I wanted a computer, (not sure why as up till then all I really coveted was LED calculators and watches).  I didn’t win the ZX81 from school but eventually convinced my Parents to get me a brand new ZX81 for my birthday. :)
