ZX81 KITS FOR SALE IN 1999:
Can it be true?
Wait for this one . . . Stewart Newfeld from Brooklyn, New York has informed me that he had over 1000 ZX81's in kit form in his warehouse collecting dust - and he's put them on sale!
The catch? Well, if there is one, its that Zebra don't ship outside the U.S. and Canada! Maybe you have a friend able to act as a middleman? Remember these kits are wired for the U.S. / Canadian market!
