Nascom 1 home build computer, computer spares, monitor, cassette player, manual and build instructions, c.1978

The Nascom 1 was the most popular British made computer kit in the UK and came as a kit or ready-built. It was based on a Zilog Z80 microprocessor which was one of the most popular processors and used in the TRS-80 and Sinclair ZX80 and 81 computers, which are already in the collections, and many versions of the Pac-Man game. The Nascom was powerful enough to compete with many home computers, such as those by Tandy.
