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
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. :)
