This week without any particular reason I was crazy about ZX Spectrum. I’m trying to find one at a decent price and I even found some on eBay but I don’t know if I will manage to get one. Obviously if you have any suggestion, especially you, my english followers, you’ll be more than welcome!

  1. Are you based in America? I’m not sure how you’d actually get a zx to display.
    I remember the specy well some good games definitely game play above graphics. One thing that puts me of old computers like the zx, cpc 464 & c64 is the dire loading times.
    Maybe look into a spectrum Vega as a more modern way of playing those old specy games.
