Jonathan Ive’s egg-shaped, all-in-one design was cuddly, colourful and cool – making something based around a 15-inch CRT desirable is no mean feat. The bold styling was backed up by equally ballsy feature choices: the G3 tossed out a 3.5-inch disk drive in favour of just a CD tray, came with a “hockey puck” circular mouse and was the first home computer to offer a USB port. Revolutionary? Not ‘alf.

The Spectrum was perhaps less powerful than its great rival, the Commodore 64, having a palette of only seven colours (plus black) and a single channel of sound – but it became hugely popular, particularly in the UK, and led to a knighthood for its creator Clive Sinclair.

in a 1.4GHz Intel Core 2 Duo ULV processor, 128GB SSD and 4GB of RAM into its skinny shell.</p> <p>With a 13.4-inch HD display, the Adamo XPS also features a full size keyboard with aluminium keys and a multitouch trackpad, all opened up with the swipe of a finger on the unique hinge design we've seen in all the pictures.</p> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-legacy-url"> <div
