RIP Sir Clive.

I agree about the Spectrum, all the kids wanted one as it had the best games.

There was nothing wrong with the C5 except that it was too far ahead of it's time to be taken seriously.

I had one of his first LED pocket calculators when I was a schoolboy; it didn't last very long.

Apparently he's still waiting at the Pearly Gates.
Pressed 'Enter' and still waiting for something to happen. :D
