Today…

Postby QLvsJAGUAR » Sat Jan 12, 2013 3:43 pm

On today’s date 29 years ago Sinclair Research launched the Sinclair QL professional computer. On January 12th 1984 - exactly 12 days earlier than Steve Jobs launched the Apple Macintosh - Sir Clive Sinclair and Nigel Searle presented the QL to the world in a Hollywood-style launch event at the Hotel Inter Continental in London.

Today I was browsing through my collection of pictures and uploaded those related to the launch event onto my Sinclair QL web gallery.

Beside of the pictures you’ll find two Web-Links of videos related to the launch event. The video of the press conference itself is not original footage; it’s filmed in 2009 with actors for the BBC docudrama Micro Men. Compare the original pictures with this video and you’ll see how authentic this scene was made.

Enjoy watching!

Cheers, Urs

Wow - looks a good machine - where can I get one?

As far as I know, the plug in Sinclair Expansion pictured was never released was it?

Have you ever gone through the provisional manual to see what changes were made after launch?

No. Even being on vacation, I‘m on my Sinclair history research mission, meeting former Sinclair employees for a chat and getting my hands on Sinclair artefacts. Watch out the sinclairql.net and QLvsJAGUAR web ressources in August.
