Sinclair ZX80 Personal Computer

This excellent example of the Sinclair ZX80 Portable Computer was donated by Anne Pilvines of Sharon MA. This computer was manufactured in 1980.

The Sinclair ZX80 is a home computer launched on 29 January 1980 by Science of Cambridge Ltd. (later to be better known as Sinclair Research). It is notable for being one of the first computers available in the United Kingdom for less than a hundred pounds. It was available in kit form for £79.95, where purchasers had to assemble and solder it together, and as a ready-built version at £99.95.
