ZX Spectrum+

By 1984, the Spectrum was starting to look a little outdated compared to its rivals, so in October Sinclair released the Spectrum+ at £179 as a replacement for the original model. The differences were little more than cosmetic (adding an improved, almost typewriter-like keyboard), but due to the now rather large software base, the machine continued to sell well.
