    Ah, happy days. My Dad was a head at the time and brought one home from school so he could get his head round it. We plugged it into the black & white tv and I never looked back. The 'rents eventually bought an '81, followed by a spectrum.

    Also got to play with BBC Bs and turtles (thanks dad!).

    I had a ZX Spectrum 48k as my first computer, I think my grandparents had a ZX81!

    Ahh .. 8 bit ... Love the era.

    I personally started off with the vic20 ... moving to the CBM64 and never really liked the specky.
    It was the duff keyboard ... the dire colour clash graphics and the noise it made that put me off.

    Loading times on the 64 rocked due to the loading tunes ... in fact some times when it loaded I would reset and load it again to hear the music (Breakout, wizzball etc)
