The PC200

------------------------------------------------------------

The last computer to appear under the Sinclair brand was the PC200, launched in 1988 by Amstrad. A cut-down PC with a 286 processor, CGA video card and no hard disk (!), it was an unsuccessful attempt by Amstrad to capture the low end of the growing PC market. Its one notable innovation was that it was could be connected to a television without needing any extra cards. However, it was a dismal commercial failure and today it is, after the ZX80, the rarest Sinclair computer.
