Completing My Sinclair Collection

Post by citizenfish »

Having caught the bad habit last year I now have a near complete collection:-

-ZX80
-ZX81
-Rubber key 16k (pending)
-Rubber key 48k
-Spectrum+
-Spectrum +2
-Spectrum +2A
-Spectrum 128k toastrack
-Spectrum +3
-ZX88

I think I need the +2B and +3B to be properly complete

I'm not too fussed about the variants within but interested if anyone thinks I'm missing something? I have a Didatek as well but am not going down the clone rabbit hole.

QL?

Most +2A cases actually contain the same PCB type as used for a +2B even if not the same board issue. Not many +2A machines found their way onto the U.K. market that contained the same type of PCB as used in a +3.

The +3B are very hard to find in the U.K.

Oh and it’s a Z88 not a ZX88.
