Jupiter Ace

Released in 1982, the Jupiter Ace was a British home computer produced by Jupiter Cantab, a company setup solely for the purpose of the Jupiter Ace.

Whist other microcomputers of the time were using BASIC, the Ace differed as it was using Forth, a very fast and structured langauge.

The Jupiter Ace was discontinued in 1984.
