the Spectrum Next would be a very attractive offer if they manage to hold the price down. :?

And I'm actually afraid that not the price will be a buzz-killer here - I don't think they can actually _deliver_.
The advertisement was *HUGE* (which is an understatement) and those "sold out" informations and "maybe you'd wait several months" say everything.

It looks very very bad from the customer side of a stick.

I've been looking at what my next personal computer should be and it seems that the ZX Next will have a ZX81 mode, so that is where my money is going.

I'm hoping it'll support the colour modes from this as well but perhaps that is a bit too much to ask.

Regards,

Shaun.

This could be added now with the displayroutine from MY ZX81-emulator. Although B&W, grpahics are possible.

They have nearly completed the shipping of the first Kickstarter ZX Spectrum Next machines (222 remaining, most being held up by the situation around the world due to COVID19 Corona virus).

Once all units have been shipped, they are looking to produce a second batch - see the updates page.
