Hi from Auckland

Introduce yourself. Tell people why you are interested in vintage computers and what (if anything) you've got.

Hi from Auckland

Postby mlasham on Fri Jan 27, 2012 1:01 pm

I live in Auckland and collect Sinclair computers and associated stuff.
When I was a young lad we borrowed a ZX81 from a friend who worked for Sinclair, and then we purchased a ZX Spectrum.
I ended up in the IT industry thanks to that exposure.
About 10 years ago I decided to start collecting Sinclair gear for the memories and perhaps one day in the distant future , for an investment (Yeah Right!)
Anyway, my collection consists of
Several ZX81
various formats of the Spectrum, 16k, 48K, +, 128K
Timex variants
microdrives, games, books, carts, etc
ICL On Per Desk
Various Sinclair calculators, amplifier kits, flat screen portable TV's, and micro TVs.
The largest item I have is a C5 electric bike

I am on the look out for a sinclair black watch and the ever illusive MK-14

Welcome to the forums!

The QL is an interesting machine. I also have one of those "ICL One per desks" under the badge of the Computerphone.
