The Spectrum Next mainboard, ideal for developers to start coding for the Next prior to its launch in 2018.
Out of stock
For the hardware hacker in you, just the ZX Spectrum Next mainboard: all the features of the Spectrum Next, minus the case and accessories.
Ideal for those wanting to house the Next inside an original Speccy (requires a lot of hacking the original case, though — only for those able to deal with some DIY).
IMPORTANT: The board will ship in September 2017 (only Kickstarter orders ship in August). The Next is custom-made for you after your order it. Custom-made products are only refundable if they are faulty. Once you order it, it will be committed to production and thus non-refundable (except in case of a fault).
