Oh, Lord, mine was a Sinclair ZX81 with 1K RAM (I sh*t you not) and a 40
x 23 monochrome text only screen. Saves were done using an audio
cassette recorder. It had a _very_ tacky membrane keyboard, and if you
were lucky enough to get the 16K RAM expansion "pod", it kept falling
out of the expansion socket and had to held in place using a carefully
folded cigarette pack or some scotch tape.

Those were the days, eh? The days I hated.

And the Vic 20? Oh, let me tell you ...
