By occasionally playing games via emulation on a DS Lite and an Xbox, but more regularly by just reading about Speccy stuff in RG, at World of Spectrum and in various FB groups. Good times!

I was Spectrum obsessed as a mere 13year old back in 1986 when I got my +2, fast forward to 2017 and I still have a first love connection to the machine, I added a 48k rubber keyed model to the collection in 1987 when my mum realised I couldn't live without my +2 when it had to go in for repair! I got that new and boxed at the ZX Microfair for £40.
I love the machine as it started me off on this life long gaming obsession that I'm on, I really have to add a Sd card device to it so I can load games instantly but failing that I have an Xbox that plays pretty much every Speccy game and a JXD 7800 that has all my favourites on it. It's wall to wall Speccy for me.......thanks Sir Clive.

I grew up with the C64 - my friends had the speccy. As such, I don't have much urge to play it today - but I do still enjoy looking at videos and screen shots of the amazing artwork. I used to consider the graphics on the speccy inferior as a kid, but my more mature eyes can see how wonderful they are. If only they had more colours :)

Amazingly I don't. I have never touched one! Just never had the opportunity and with waning free time and no nostalgia to call on I probably never will play one.
