On this Day in 1984
the Plus gets released.
The ZXSpectrum + (development code-name TB) introduced a new QL-style case with an injection-moulded keyboard and a reset button that was basically a switch that shorted across the CPU reset capacitor. Electronically, it was identical to the previous 48 kB model. It was possible to change the system boards between the original case and the Spectrum+ case. It retailed for £179.95.A DIY conversion-kit for older machines was also available.
