T > TIMEX / SINCLAIR > 1000     


This is the US version of the Sinclair ZX-81 marketed by Timex. The main difference is that the TS 1000 has 2 KB RAM instead of the 1 KB RAM of the original ZX-81.

See the ZX-81 pages for more info...



Wow, this brings back memories. A friend of mine in 1982 told me I should check out this little machine and he let me borrow it for a weekend. He handed it to me in a brown paper bag (not sure why I recall that). Now for over 30 years it has been my profession. It all started with this little Timex computer.
