For the office?  :-\ I must admit that I was always tempted to bring an Amstrad to the lab and use it as a glorified calculator but... well...  :-\

Yeah, how are you supposed to play midi files in the office with a ZX. Oh wait, aren't you there to do real work?

You'd be surprised how much productivity is raised with some quality music. In that regards of course you could also settle for a ZX, but come on, everyone's going to hate you.

In most labs proper AY chiptunes would actually increase productivity because people would try to finish as soon as possible and leave the place  ;D Not so many appreciate the good stuff!

Losers, all of them.


Or posh people, with their Beet-ovens and their Bachs and whatnot.

The products in our lab are usually much more interesting to the average person than an 8-bit computer, so I doubt it would be noticed.

No, and in case your next guess is Female Androids with laser cannons, it's not that either :D

Heh, seems like I got lucky! I have several STs (hm, let's see, an STM, STFM1040, STe4096, couple of MegaSTs, probably another 520STe) and I've never owned a boxed one... even my original 1040STFM from back in the day was bought second hand!


Ahhh can't wait, though now I'm hesitant to keep it in my ofice!


Huge thanks, @||C|-|E|| :)
