Still a color module for ZX81 om eBay

Post by mrtinb »

This color module can be used both for ZX81 and Lambda 8300.

I have one already, I won’t buy it. Maybe someone in this forum would like it for their system.

Call me a purist, but it just feels wrong to add color to a ZX-81. Part of the charm and quirkiness of that little computer is its lack of color.
To each his own I suppose...

Well, I agree that the absence of color has its charm, but on the other hand the extensibility potential of the beloved Zeddy is an attractive possibility and also full of charm. I like to have options.

Cool, though I've always kind of felt that if you are going to add color, may as well just play on a speccy?
