Sinclair ZX Spectrum 48K

The much anticipated successor to the ZX81, the ZX Spectrum was originally released with options for 16K or 48K RAM. The 16K Spectrums were upgradable to 48K. It was recognisable by its distinctive rubber key keyboard and it sported rainbow stripes to indicate the introduction of colour, where the ZX80 and ZX81 were purely monochrome.

My ZX Spectrum 48K is a relatively recent eBay purchase and I've done little with except for the composite video mod for which I followed this:, and the addition of a missing foot.
