Hello from Washington State

Post by topsock » Fri Apr 05, 2019 9:11 pm

Just found this while researching. I missed the kick-starter and curious if there will be another or up for sale again. Would be nice to add to my little collection. Thinking about adding a zx-80 minstrel and this NEXT as I don't want to take a chance on a zx-80 or Spectrum from eBay. Current owner of: zx-81, ts-1000, ts-1500, ts-2068

When the nexts ship (current estimate June/July) there's bound to be a bunch on eBay. Next boards also pop up there every now and then, if you want to get your hands on one earlier.

And there's the decision to run second kickstarter to just produce another batch of the cased units - after the current KS is finalized and everything is shipped and done. I.e. hopefully around that June/July they will start to prepare for second campaign (this time without any serious research/development, just re-using everything from current run), although that may take multiple months/year until the final unit from second batch will materialize in someone's hands. So looking out for some at eBay is faster option. :)

I probably should have opted to get the board too, not that I have had a lot of time to do speccy stuff while waiting for the next to ship.. =)

Well I will keep an eye on eBay but I’d rather they do another Kickstarter for additional units. Will just wait and see then. Thanks for the replies!
