Initially released in 1983 as a 48k model, the Caputers Lynx was an 8-bit home computer based around the Z80A CPU which was clocked at 4 MHz, the 128 kb models running at 6 MHz.
It was, at the time considered to be quite advanced and other models were also available which had 96 kb and 128 kb of RAM respectively, and with the addition of a 5.25″ floppy drive, then this made it possible for the machine to run the C/PM operating system.
Prices ranged from over £200 for the 48k model and up to £345 for a 128k machine, which in comparison to the ZX Spectrum was a lot more expensive.
With very little software available, the Camputers Lynx was discontinued in June 1984 when the company ceased trading.
It is estimated that around 30,00 machines were sold worldwide.
