I originally had a Timex Sinclair ZX81, and found the Timex Sinclair 1500 BASIC programming home course kit on E-Bay. The kit included several booklets, a flashy data cassette player, and a Timex Sinclair 1500 and tapes all in a stylish foam lined plastic briefcase. One of the program I ran on the TS 1500 plotted out mortgages and interest payments as a graph. Using this little computer saved me several tens of thousands of dollars of interest by refinancing from a 30 year fixed high interest rate, to a 15 year low interest rate loan. Thank you Sir Sinclair and Timex for making a great TS 1500 home computer ! :-)

in 9182 My mom brought me a Timex 1500 computer. I first wanted to power it off a 9 voly dry cell because the power adpator was rated 9 volts. it is how i learned to master programming in basic. I wanted to build my own interface circiut but th emembrain keyboard went faulty. I brought from th eUK in 1984 a magazine that you could make a keyboard for the computer and a joystick adaptor. I wish it had not stopped working. It lasted longer than commadore 64 because the PSU for the 64 normally blew and you had to replace th ePSU, memory modules and the rom chips
