The Z88


After the takeover of Sinclair Research's computer business by Amstrad in 1986, Clive established a new company, Cambridge Computers (he had sold the rights to the Sinclair brand of computers, so had to create a new corporate name). Cambridge's sole major product was the Z88, a laptop Z80-based machine, not PC-compatible, with an LCD screen. It has proved surprisingly successful, though on a rather more modest scale than some of Sinclair's earlier computers.
