An early example of a Personal Computer. It used a domestic television as a display. The program was supplied on a cassette tape run on an internal tape player.

Add a memory or information about this object
- I was actually given this computer, brand new and in its box, by a toy
retailer client of mine who told me they were impossible to sell. Why ?
Because you had to load BASIC from a cassette before it could be used
for anything. Given that you then had to load your application software
from cassette, the time it took was unacceptable. Its competitors had BASIC pre-loaded. Enough said.
