Timex Sinclair 1000
The Timex Sinclair 1000 (TS1000) was the result of a joint effort between British company Sinclair Research and Timex Corporation in an effort to gain an entry into the rapidly-growing early 1980s home computer market in the United States.
The TS1000, launched in July 1982, was the first machine resulting from the cooperation. It was a slightly modified Sinclair ZX81 with an NTSC RF modulator instead of a UK PAL device and the onboard RAM doubled to two kilobytes. The TS1000's casing had slightly more internal shielding but remained the same as Sinclair's, including the much-reviled membrane keyboard. It was followed by an improved version, the Timex Sinclair 1500.
