Camputers Lynx Disk Drive Unit
The first machine, the Lynx 48K, was released in March 1983 as a home computer system to directly rival the Spectrum. The specification was rapidly upgraded to 96K in September 1983, and those who had bought a 48K system could send their machines back to Camputers to have the upgrade installed. This was one of the touted features of the Lynx range - easy expandability - as the single 5.25" disk drive shown here.
The disk drive was released in September 1983, alongside the Lynx 96. It required 96K, so only worked with the Lynx 96 or an upgraded Lynx 48.
