      This is pretty cool. Someone has scanned in the ENTIRE 1985 Argos catalogue. Really worth a look through. It's so interesting to see products from back then, and in some cases even more interesting to see the pre-China prices.

      Here's a link to the 1985 Argos catalogue: http://www.flickr.com/photos/[email protected] ... 206330728/

      Below are a few examples. Ahhh... the days before 3D CAD when everything had square edges!

      Very nostalgic, I had a Sinclair Spectrum when I was 15. I was very proud of it. Now I can emulate a Spectrum in a web browser! I see what you mean about the pre-CAD prismatic shapes and the sharp corners. I wonder how many of these products are still functioning.

      Me too - a 48k with the rubber keys :)

      This site is really good: http://www.worldofspectrum.org They have lots of downloadable Spectrum emulators and all the classic games!
