  • The BBC model B had a nice keyboard and so did the Amstrad 6128, but the best keyboard goes to the TI-99/4a ;D

  • I've never typed on an Amstrad that I can remember, and bare-in-mind Sugar was a tight arse I doubt I was missing much lol...But whatever computer you remember most fondly is usually your fave.  Mine was a Spectrum and that had a crap keyboard :D

  • I still love the 6128 layout from Amstrad, but, yeah, thats me being biased... I'll not lie, its what I used the most. But do agree, the big chunky clicky click of the keyboard was great!

  • And the best keyboard of the 80's home computers by a mile!  Always looked cool too with those red function keys and black keys.

  • Haha, everybody wrote something rude or just hello to the screen in WH Smiths with a goto 10.  But the specs of expandability and speech were required.

  • I remember Lunar Lander on the BBC, that was a playground fave, speechmaster thingy, a lad called Wilson put |speech,"Mr Giles is a shit", and hit enter, the exact moment Mr Giles walked through the door... A trip to the head teacher and detention for his opinion! :D Funny that :D

  • Steve Elliott:
  • Oh well done, a pristine 1 will set you back £600 for the computer alone these days, muppet lol. Mine was a lot cheaper than that but still in good condition.

  • Dunno if it worked or not.  Definitely didn't after I shovelled it up off the drive.

  • Found one left in a cupboard in a house I bought some years back, plus a Microvitec monitor.  Was so pissed off with that and the garage full of rubbish the previous owner left, I hoyed the lot out of an upstairs window. :D

  • The Beeb arrived. It's a beast! I haven't seen a BBC Micro since the 80's, I'd forgotten how big they were lol.

  • @Mike - She's 10 years old and has bladder cancer ( TCC ). She has chemotherapy every 3 weeks. As this can reduce the white blood cell count she's susceptible to infections for a while. Lucily she's her usual nut ball self 95% of the time.
