Loke's Computer History


Computer History
Fantastic computer power, featuring 1kB (yes, 1024 bytes) RAM for only £100. It was expanded to 16kB RAM for maximum enjoyment. Programmable in BASIC
ZX Spectrum
Sinclairs next generation. Featuring 48kB RAM and rubber keyboard (great improvement from ZX81). Many hours was spent playing games from "Ultimate Play the game" on this one.
   Commodore 128
With 128kB RAM I was fairly sure, that I would never need more RAM. I could not imagine anything using more RAM than this. And with the 5.25" floppy drive, storage was lightning fast. I really loved this machine, even though the most used command was "GO64"
Commodore Amiga 500
I still have this one. Every now and then, I meet up with my mates to play Kick Off tounaments on this. The best damn football game ever made! Needles to say, that many warm feelings of nostalgia is linked to this classic computer.
