It was possible to install different ROMs into the lambda to gain better ZX81 compatibility. I have made a multirom-board which can be seen here:

The PC-8300 was distributed in Canada for a few years as surplus by Princess Auto. The manual included a little bit of English, but was mostly printed with Chinese block characters. The case and colour scheme are exactly as shown for Lambda Electronics PC-8300, though there was no such branding on the original box, the manual, or the computer.

The Lambda was my first computer inherited from a friend who got an Amstrad 464 around 1983-84. I used it to type Basic programs from magazines. I only had it about a year before I got an Amstrad and never looked back

Can that it was under the Marathon name in Norway. I had one like this around 1982-83 (probably ''82) under the name Marathon 32K and bought it in Oslo.

Well, the Lambda 8300 was distributed in Denmark - probably also the rest of the nordics. It was an exact ZX81 clone (first cloning that I am aware of?) and ran Sinclair software just fine.
Best rgds. from Denmark, and do keep up the good work!

The Lambda PC 8300's keyboard looks almost identical to the Panasonic JR-100 at http://www.old-computers.com/museum/computer.asp?c=320&st=1
Same style and layout and everything! This has to be more than just a coincidence...
