I owned and still own a DAI 48K machine. Cost 595ukp + 15% VAT in February 1981. Purchased after extensive research at the time into home computers available on the market. Chosen due to its good graphics, proper keyboard. It was a quick machine compared to many, with a semi-compiled BASIC, though I moved on to 8080 assembler after a few months.
Plugged it in over this last weekend, green motherboard power-on LED showed, so assume it still works. But do not have a suitable monitor for screen output. I now need a means of converting the RGB output from the DAI to HDMI into a modern TV.
Still have a cassette tape with some programs on it, so would be fun to see them again. But will have to find a cassette player from somewhere. Not sure if I still own one.
