SINCLAIR QL's 25th birthday
On January 12th 1984 Sir Clive Sinclair presented the Sinclair QL Professional Computer in a Hollywood-style launch event at the Intercontinental Hotel, Hyde Park Corner, London. This was exactly 12 days earlier than Steve Jobs presented the Apple Macintosh.
The QL still is a very good example of an innovative, stylish, powerful and underestimated product. On one hand it failed in the market in the long run but on the other it influenced many developments which ended intoday’s products.
Today, 25 years later we congratulate and celebrate the 25th birthday of the Sinclair QL!
Check out this 25th anniversary web page and presentation.
It took me several hours on a cold winter Sunday to prepare the information, pictures and finally build the anniversary web page and presentation. This is my present to the QL community.
Happy 25th anniversary and QL forever!
