My System 1

I bought my System 1 back in 1979 for the then princely sum of £65 (£75 with the VAT) paid for by my summer holiday job working in a Freezer !  I was a keen student electronics hobbyist and just about to start my second year at University on a Physics and Computing course.  I had been using mainframe computers at University but this was my first time with a 'personal' computer.

Unfortunately I have misplaced the original 6502 CPU Board, I'm still hoping it will turn up some day, it must be somewhere I would never have got rid of it, so sadly the Keyboard, Display & Cassette Interface Board is on its own.
