|With his new
company, Sinclair Research, on a firm footing,
the 1980s were by far Sinclair's most successful
decade. The man himself became a household name
and millions of his machines were sold (and
pirated!) around the world. The descent was,
however, nearly as swift as the rise.
Note: the machine in
italics were not produced by Sinclair Research,
but were instead authorised clones of the ZX81,
Spectrum and QL.
