1982.

Sinclair ZX Spectrum was the direct follow-up to the Sinclair ZX 81, and was somewhat sharper. It was based on the same concept that the two predecessors, namely cheap and simple.

In the first place, it had a better keyboard, but still not good enough. But it was the first Sinclair colour computer, with its 8 colours, and of course, the graphics was better. And the memory was better. Eventually it came a whole range of different Spectrum computers with different performance, but they never reached up to the popularity of ZX81.

Is there any errors? e-mail and correct me!
