And thank Primus for that! Nasty rubber keys on a membrane keyboard... *shudders* Also, I doubt one of those would have lasted long if I'd owned one - I was taught to type by a former professional typist, on a manual typewriter, my tendency to rattle keyboards is something still noticeable to this day. Either it would have given up the ghost, or I would have tossed it out the window in frustration.
(One former colleague and a fellow student have both said I sound like a machine-gun when I type - but to me I sound more like a submachine gun. I do not type at the cyclic rate my teacher managed, not even close.)
Looks spiffy. I hope it's a decent price. The Vega never did come down - although there's a new handheld version on the way, so the previous model will presumably drop in price when that arrives. Still, this looks more appealing.
'Yes, the Spectrum Next is amazing. And it also does extra good: part of all revenue generated by the project, in perpetuity, will go straight to the Royal National Institute of the Blind. We owe big thanks to the Amstrad / Sinclair brand holders who granted us the right to use their IP in exchange to this donation for one of the greatest charities around.
'Part': far too vague. If you're including charity donations then state what that percentage will be!!!
