7 Jan 1998
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.
