I am a very happy old man today. And showing my age as I was 7 or 8 when this came out in 1978.

I arrived into work today to find a very nice surprise Sean had sent me. Upon opening the box I found a brown suitcase with an HP logo on it. :shock:

This now classifies as my oldest piece of kit as it is around 2-3 years older than my ZX80 and MicroAce.

Can't wait to get it home and show the kids. (Hopefully it won't go bang when I turn it on)

My youngest also has a talk coming up around parents hobbies and the missus has been suggesting I do one on vintage computers. This will be a great example to show them.

Thanks Sean very much appreciated and far surparses the Z88 I sent you.

No worries mate - a few turned up so I decided to return some Internet Karma :D

I was going to give one to LizardBoy when he was next down, but after firing my one up and doing Reset/FetchAdrs/0662/Run/3 and seeing how awesome it looked I had second thoughts about airport security!
