Spectrum

Just noticed this story over at the BBC:
Production is set to start on a remodelled version of the ZX Spectrum, which will come pre-installed with 1,000 classic game titles.
Whoa... A Spectrum? Really? Beats messing around at car boot sales, tape drives etc.  But, it's not a full blown Speccy.  Shame.

I quite like the idea of getting something old and 'classic' but making it internet connected.
Imagine surfing the web (text mode, obviously) on a Spectrum.  Or opening your super powerful laptop to be greeted with this:


I'd immediately punch in SYS 64738.  If you know what that does, then GeekPoints+ to you.
