Jupiter Ace in replacement Camputers Lynx Case

The Jupiter ACE was a British home computer of the 1980s, marketed by a company named Jupiter Cantab. The company was formed by Richard Altwasser and Stephen Vickers, who had been on the design team for the Sinclair ZX Spectrum.

The Jupiter ACE somewhat resembled a ZX81 in a white case, with black rubber keys like the Spectrum. It displayed output on a television, and programs could be saved and loaded on cassette tape, as was standard at that time. The machine came with 3 KB RAM, expandable to 49 K. It had its own RAM packs, which are very rare and fetch high prices, however a ZX81 Pack can be used with an adaptor.

The owner of this ACE has replaced the original case with one belonging to a Camputers Lynx. The extra space within the replacement has enabled the power supply to be incorporated and can be seen in the top right of the second image.
